    I think that it could use some tweaking, however, you have a good start. I wouldn't use the terms "I" and "me". I would use "US" and "WE". It makes you sound bigger and more professional. Just my .02, whether it is worth that or not.

    I select certain residential areas to pass them out in. I go for areas that are close to home so i can minimize drive time.

    I cut a couple deals this week with local pizza joints. You know how when you order a pizza or pick one up, the receipt is always stapled to the box. Well I figured why not have a small flyer or biz card stapled along with it. To make along story short, I currently have 3 pizza places close to me doing this. I got one today and the other two 3 days ago. Since then I have only gotten one call, but i think that is great, its only been three days!
    Have any of you guys ever done this before?

    hey precisionlawn that is a great idea. I never thought of that. Keep us updated as to the success you're having and like the previous post, what about prices?

    You might consider changing your name from XXXX Lawn Care to something like AAAA Lawn Care. This would move you from the last listing in the phone book to the front.

    Thanks for the advice Matt.
    Please let me know how that pizza thing turns out. What is the cost of something like that. Sounds like a great idea.

    I'd suggest that it is too generic. Try to think of one (or 2) key things that really make you different from your competitors...and build your "brand" of irrigation services around that! You can still mention the other things you offer...but what sets you apart. What is going to compell someone to consider you over the next guy?
