    For this spring, I will be: mowing, trimming shrubs, installing mulch, and doing clean-ups. I am going to pass out at least 10k flyers, and send out at least 10,000 postcards. I am thinking about offering other services through sub contracting. I'm not sure if I should say that I offer other services(fertilizing, aerating, dethatching, tree work, landscaping...etc.) on my advertising. I don't want anyone to read my flyer, or post card, and them say "If they did more than just mowing, bush trimming, mulch, and clean-ups, I'd hire them" I know that most people want someone that can do it all, it saves them a hassle of making phone calls to find other people. So, what do you guys think I should do??? I have other companies lined up to provide these other services, but I just don't know how to tell the people that read the advertising.

    Do you sub the work out, if so, do you tell them that you are subcontracting the work, or do you just refer the other company???
