    Think I'd reword it from Mow,trim and blow :D
    BTW,what's your average price for just the blow?:eek:
    Maybe Mow,trim,& cleanup?
    Looks good other than that.

    Sildoc, Get it in writing that it is the fifth mowing of the season. (I assume that is what your offering) I offered the same thing and you would not believe how many thought that it was EVERY fifth mowing. Good luck,looks good. Tony

    T.E. In my contract it states fifth is free with yearly contract. Most of the time they just subtract one mowing from the total of the yearly price then divided by 12 or 9 which ever they pick.

    I like how everything is simply laid out, easy to read, and there is not too much text to get lost in....but (and maybe b/c the pic is dark on the computer) the pick is not the best and the grass section on the bottom does not match the pic on the top. But honestly, what customer is not going to hire you b/c they did't like your flier pic. I think lots has to do w/ being at the right place at the right time and portraying a professionally image.

    How much different in price are the full color hangers like yours, versus the simple ones from www.nebs.com ?Make the noted changes and it will be great...z_clark-Chance favors the prepared mind!!.....:D

    Price differance is about 150 per 1000. But after you deduct the business card that you attach to the nebs it is close say maybe 30-50 max. I am willing to have a nicer looking flyer/door hanger for that minor amount. I guess I will try one year and see what happens. All that can happen is I get no calls (highly unlikely) and I have a tax write off.
    Now mind you I am using these for my high end areas. I will do the flyer thing at 2-3 pennies apiece for my medium end areas.
