    Depends on what is on your doorhangers. If it involves any coupon incentives, I would start puttingthem out sooner to be sure I got anybody that was on-the-fence about their existing lawncare guy and considering trying a new guy. Get them B4 they commit to the status quo.

    People are already advertising in our area. Was riding thru a plan of new homes, and I saw next to the mailboxes on the ground at the end of each driveway a flyer rolled up with a gumband. I stopped and picked one up, they were from a landscaping company.
