Soliciting is prohibited in a small community that we would like to acquire some accounts from. Does this include leaving flyers at the door? We think so but we would like other people's input. If the flyers are prohibited, what are your suggestions on how to acquire these accounts. My guess would be a direct mailer. Thank you in advance.

Is soliciting going past someone's house and noticing they need lawn care??? You were just trying to help them.... It is a touchy situation

I also was thinking about putting a sign in my yard since we live on the busiest street in the community. I do keep my lawn and landscaping very well maintained. What do ya'll think? Thank you guys in advance.

my guess would be that the next best thing would be to advertise in the paper that serves that srea, & put in cl***ified or timely announcements "ATTENTION PITTSBURG (or whatever) RESIDENTS: QUALITY AFFORDABLE LAWN CARE & LANDSCAPING IS NOW AVAILABLE IN YOUR AREA. Then could add (if desired) Lone Star lawn is expanding due to public response & is now serving the XXXX area. Call for a free estimate, blah blah blah. Keep it short & sweet, to spark their curiosity. Good luck.

The reason why I thought of the sign is because there is alot of landscaping companies and tree trimming compainies that place there sign in a customers yard after a job for a period of time. I thought maybe I could put one up for a period of time then take it down. By the way, the community that I live in has alot of retirees so lawn care in abundant in this area. I see about 20 compainies a day in the area.

Does the community allow For Sale signs on the lawn?

It might be a place to start. If they do then get a lawn sign for your business professionally made in the form of a For Sale sign.
You could even mount a small box on it with your business cards or flyers in it. Now if the people want a flyer they can get one.Good Luck.
