    I need some opinions on how to word my invoices. I am basically saying that we are blowing around a few things in the lawn than removing the leaves. how does this sound?

    :Remove leaves from 1/4 of lawn or smaller


    And then maybe how would i word it when the leaves come down hard, and i have to include running over them and chewing them up??


    Any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance!!





    Shep :)

    Why don't you just simplify matters by using the term "Leaf Clean-up", "Leaf Removal", "Leaf Mulching", "Leaf Disposal" or something else along that line?

    Your customer will understand and appreciate a short name for what you are doing...a lengthly description is unnecessary.

    just my 2 cents.

    I think what he is after is
    -Leaf removal in less than 1/4 the lawn area $XX.xx

    or
    -Leaf removal in less than 3/4 the lawn area $XX.xx

    rod - thanks for the info. i have a column called "item" and thats where i put such things like you listed. in the column after that is called "description". that is what i am looking at wording for.

    mac - you hit the nail on the head. thank you much!
