    When do you start running your local ad for spring/summer mowing?

    We start early Feb. and run the remainder of the season :)

    mid march til may....every customer that i've gotten from ads has been in the month of april. ads during the rest of the season don't really work too well. i do have business cards and such out and about so they are advertising all year long.
