    Gator huh?
    Sounds like you're from FL.

    Muskie Mowing sounds more like your area.

    Then add some color. Maybe a tan background too.

    Then your name and # much larger. Your name not Gator. I take it you live with your parents, so I doubt everyone that's going to be working the phone will answer Gator Mowing.

    The rough edges look ok, you just need to finish it.

    Phone Number???

    That's how they'll find you.555-1212

    I have my own cell phone. I did this because I kept missing calls. I also think it looks more professional then using a home phone.

    Thanks for the reply. I will change it to muskie lawncare or something like that.

    I also will change the phone# size to about a 72 font.

    I like your flyer. It is simple and effective. This is a good example of the KISS method.

    Looks Great!!!

    My only thought is the graphic at the bottom does not ooze with confidence. It would make me think that I was hiring a 12 year old to cut my lawn

    I have found that hiring a professional to do the layout for my flyers has been the best money I ever spent. maybe just because I found somebody really good -- but ..... To me $50 dollars spent on a flyer design that is 2x as effective is definitely worthwhile.

    Get rid of the kid at the bottom.

    It only brings to truth the "lawn boy" image we are all trying to get rid of.

    Ditto!!!

    Other than that, looks pretty decent. I think you have a good start and better than others that I have seen. I am sure the more you make and more that you see, your flyers will improve.

    Ditto the kid on the bottom has got to go. "Little boy" lawn service has a tough time in my area. Especialy when it's time to collect. Other than that, looks good, just add the phone number. :D
