    Seeing if any of you guys have bought yard signs to put out in your city and if you got any business out of it, also where did you buy and how much? Looking more some more accounts this year, any feed back would be appreciated.

    I ordered some for this year. About 50 for maintenance and 50 for aeration/overseeding (mainly for the fall).

    I'm still putting them out but will check back in with a report once they have a chance to work. The way I see it, even if I get one weekly maintenance account out of them they will have paid for themselves. I suspect the aeration ones will do much better.

    I bought 50 last year and had a pretty good return. Bought on line but can't remember who. I also just started doing my own. Hopefully will have a good return this year by making my own. You will have alot of them stollen...

    I am real careful where and when I put out yard signs. City codes will take them up on roadways and sometimes fine you.
