    I have a small ad in the Landscaping section of the classifieds in my local paper, but most of my work comes from word of mouth.

    Fliers will work well, the beauty with them is that you can offer time sensitive deals (like xx% off if you call before xx/xx/xx) and you can target only certain areas you want (or not distribute in areas you do not want). Use about 1% response rate as a rule of thumb (you will not land all of these though).
    Good luck,
    Eric
