    Get Guerilla Marketing for Free from a bookstore or library. Print up your flyers and distribute in a neighborhood close by, use door hanges as well, put signage on your truck and trailer and above all do great work. There will be more word of mouth and walk up clients than anything else so the good quality of work will speak volumes. Also act as professional as possible, this will help immensely when dealing with clients.

    check your spelling and don't over advertise price because you don't want to look desperate give a sale ex. 15% off or a coupon. Also list the service's you provide and think of a phrase like "get your property in the grass LANE" good luck.

    I would take mulching off the flyer. It puts more work on your mower and most places don't think of it unless you mention it. Just a suggestion.

    The graphics look good. Since you are just starting out and are on a limited budget I think that it will work out good for you

    I'm with you on this. everything looks great except for "mulching is standard".

    One thats important that nobody is saying is to put on there Licensed and Insured but only if you are I hope. Other than that looks good and Welcome to Lawn Site!:waving:

    I would get rid of the mower graphics and add grass or leaves or something...I used to use a walk-behind mower in my logo and everyone thought we were a mower repair shop or something..
