    Well said. I wasnt going to say anything cause its better than 95% of the ones I've seen. Maybe just find some perfect looking stock photo.

    it is not green and it is not flush, there are lots of grey to lightish green/brown shadings. the flyer itself is a nice one, but the lawn in my opinion needs to be a better photo.

    I agree with the above posts in that the lawn does look a bit off color in spots. Overall very nice.

    Nobody noticed that "Guaranteed" and "equipment" and "operated" are all spelled wrong? Potential customers will question "Turf Doctor's" knowledge. Also, you should add "a" before "free soil analysis"

    And the opening line about the lawn being attacked is directly from a Scott's radio ad.....

    And dont be surprised if someday the green thumb company has an issue with your name. I think RIC had a problem with that.

    Sorry, had to look a little deeper than just the pic of the lawn.

    Wow, Im really not illiterate -I promise. lol This flyer looks like TURF DOCTOR dropped out of school in the third grade.LOL
    This is exactly why I did this, im getting excellent feedback for improvement.
    About the name, I'm curious to hear more because in NY I was isssued a DBA because no one else in the county is operating under this name. I know that doesn't exclude me from a lawsuit. Did he have to go to court?
