I design all my flyers myself but I was kinda rushed and am still learning the business and, believe it or not, I raised my prices from last year. I live in a city where everything is cheap incl. housing and food. I also have been in business for 8 years doing other services.

If you are going to run your business like that why don't you have your "starting at" included in your lawns also. How can you do every 5500 lot for $20 when every lot has different obstacles in them:dizzy: :dizzy:

NO contract, no obligation. How can Just Mowing do every lot under 12,000sq ft for $27. If I don't like a lawn I will drop it or raise the price...easier said then done. But I have history in certain neighborhoods where I literally have hundreds of window cleaning customers and dozens of snow customers. Being compact makes a difference.

edit: crap, I should have put "based on the average lot" or something like that.

Hey it might not be a perfect system but I'm new to this lawn care business and will likely be working out the kinks for years to come.

Ultimately I would like to create a profit model that has a low-cost (but highly efficient) service at the bottom, to keep the competition at bay and a higher end service on a monthly basis that would be more profitable and include everything incl. bush and bed and snow.

In the property assessments the city does, they don't include this real estate as part of the homeowners lot size. it can be significant to, +2000 sq ft even

I dont think its way out as far as price... I think those flyers look pretty good, how did you make them?
