You only get two days off a week, why spend one of them in your lawn?

    I am really sorry for such a lame and wasteful thread, but a while back I think someone said that they used "You get two days off a week, why spend one of them in your lawn" on one of their advertisements. I really like this quote and I was wondering if whoever said it didn't mind letting me use it.

    Once again sorry for the wastefull thread but I need an answer quick!

    I didn't know you had to have permission to use general wording on your ad.

    Unless it is a competitor from your town, or a large company that has a copyright to that specific slogan, I'd say use it.

    I doubt you will be getting any letters from the lawyer of an angry Lawnsite member. :rolleyes:

    But your a good man for asking anyway.

    However, I've seen where "borrowed" photographs will get people fired up.

    I sincerely doubt if the original writer spent the money to have the slogan trademarked. Do an internet search, there are several websites that can help you find trademarked and copyrighted items. The same applies to internet domains.:usflag: :usflag: :usflag:

    I said it....who cares if you use it. That is why I threw it out there, for someone else to take advantage of it. I think the post was asking for good one liners...

    If we were sitting down and I was "consulting" you on marketing tips for your biz, then I would charge.
