    Have any of you had any luck putting plastic signs at major intersections in and around where you mow?

    I'm thinking of doing this around where I mow to see how it goes.

    Check your local ordinances, In most areas it is against the law.

    I figure most of the people driving past the sign will be from the area.

    I was mainly curious if any of you have done this before?

    Yes. It is considered litter in some jurisdictions.

    Must not be in mine. Signs are everywhere and never get pulled.

    In certain counties where I'm at is against ordinaces, but where I am able to place them it has been far more effective than my two phone book ads. So I highly suggest it.

    Did this last year with the signs everywhere, all major intersections. Some are still there today, some disappeared the next day. Mixed results, got some real customers out of it, got some price shoppers, and got some people who were a little to far out of my area. As long as you don't break the bank buying them, I say go for it, all of my signs were paid for in one job. hope this helps you out
