    It looks really good. Is "brick pavers" supposed to be yellow? Just curious, because everything else on that line is white.
    Did you make it yourself?

    It looks good You should get some calls with that. What size lawns will be considered for the 29.95 price? Just curious.

    Honestly I think it a bit cluttered, please don't take it personally. Plus your giving big discounts and guaranteeing the lowest price. $23 for lawn service, and 29 for fert, even for the smallest lawns theres no way I would make money, maybe you can. Let us know how you made out.

    the 23.00 per week is just for tiny ass lots that me and one guy can do in 8 minutes im not positive but i belive the lots are like 50x95 plus with the house and driveway, and thats the same for fertilizer.

    looks good. I really like it. It is great marketing with the coupons. What program did you use to make it?
    Also, how do you manage to do fertilization programs without doing weed control or insect control? Those go pretty much hand in hand.

    Yeah, but do you WANT these types of customers? You will probably attract a lot of cheapskates expecting their $35 yard mowed for $23. Not to mention you are telling people willing to pay decent money that you aren't good enough for them. I would raise the minimum price a little. Not a lot. Just my .02

    Listen, one thing I can tell you is don't be afraid of making money. After you break down all your expenses and pay the help, your not making anything. I would bet the house you get a lot of tire kickers, but hey thats ok as long as you can sell yourself, because they better not bulk at the price. If your in it now to build a bit of a base then I say ok, get your schedule full, weed out the bad guys and stick with the good guys and build from there. Also, upsell to these customers, walk around the property with them, point out the things that need to be done.
