    Sorry. I agree with the others. Start from scratch. Stay away from the "will beat any other "bid"" crap. Residents take estimates - not bids. Get rid of the "6 years experience", as well. It's cheezy, and what are you going to do next year, when it is 7 years? Also, if you are going to use a stock photo, use one that doesn't look like it has dead trees in the yard. I didn't really understand this, and had to look close, because it looked like it was perhaps a spring picture, but all the trees in the back fields are just too full for these little trees to look like this. If ou are going to give the connotation that you do this lawn, use one that doesn't say. "Nice guy...he mows my lawn...Too bad he killed our trees". Also, the photoshopped stander in the middle of nowhere is not even CLOSE to scale and just out of place. Don't mean to be harsh, but your initial marketing is something that takes alot of thought and planning. I just don't want you to go through all that when you could put the same amount of initial work and money into something pro.

    Hell I like it. I do agree with Runner though about the "years experience". You could always order new cards with 7 next year I guess. Mine are only a hundred bucks per 1000 so its not like theyre that expensive. I like the scissors though and the grass tall then cut evenly. Looks nice. The trees were a good point. Maybe change that and call it good.
