    A buddy and I started a part time Lawn Care/ Home Improvement company this year. We have decided to make it a go for full time work next spring...
    We do way more than just lawn care and ladscaping. We are kind of like the total package when it comes to home care and improvement. Here is a list of what all we offer:
    Lawn Care, all landscape work, dirt work (rough & finish grade)tree removal,tree trimming, concrete work (patio slabs, driveways, sealing driveways, decks, fencing.... pretty much anything that relates to lawn/landscape care & home improvement... My question is this, what do you think is the best way for us to advertise? Also, your thoughts on our logo. The reason I ask about how to advertise, is because we have a Lawn Care name.

    Hey Mike,

    Your logo is fine.

    "what do you think is the best way for us to advertise?"

    Did you consider flyers to get started? Review more about distributing them here.

    Good call Glan. I just lettered my truck this week, and what a difference it makes. SO much more professional. Thought about the magnetic signs, but they look too cheap. Got the lettering for both doors, very large on back window, and 2'x3' sign for back of trailer all for around $80.00. Will try to post some pics.

    I have been looking into getting either magnetic signs or just getting a decal for my Jeep. I just wonder how many calls you actually get from someone seeing your truck with your company name and number. I'm also in the middle of developing out website so people can go there to get ALL the information they need.

    I have a large F350 (beautiful truck) Professional lettering etc.. I also live in a larger city. I don't know if my lettering has ever got me a call. But I still think it is very important to have.
