I think they look great. I like the front being simple and to the point, and then leaving the back for details. One thing I would change is instead of putting "-10%", I would put 10% OFF. Just my 2 cents. One other thing is I don't know if I'm to crazy about the light blue background on the front and back. Just looks a little outta place with everything else green. Perhaps using a background that is just grass that's stripped nice. Idk, overall they look good, just giving you some feedback.

Can't see your attachments for some reason. Just has a red X where they should be.

Those look really good! How will you be distributing them?

Also, maybe include some benefits instead of writing 'special offer on back.'

The space on your door hanger is valuable and you need to use it to get the customer to call you.

I think the light blue is perfect. It makes the logo pop a little and it brings the outdoors to mind.

combined with the green grass it feels like a sunny day.

Here is a postcard proof that "jklawncare" asked me to do.

JK... I never heard back from you. I made all the revisions you needed. Did you get my emails?

Very nice work! If anyone else is reading this and looking for some great lawn care marketing material, you should contact Bob above.

:)the flyers look great,hopefully bring in lots of work.
I have done something similar several times and had to change offering 100% guarantee.It is near impossible to keep everybody 100% happy all of the time.I had certain new customers taking advantage of this and getting free visits.Working fo nothing wasn't what i signed up for.Some of you will no doubt disagree,i'm just sharing my experience.Hope this is of some use.Paul Frodsham Gardens:)

WOW!!! Those are amazing!!! I need something like that, but as my first season, I don't have any pictures of my work yet. I also question how I am going to market what I want to do. Basically, I am going to take on jobs that are home care as well (gutters, small remodeling projects, building small projects, etc.) Is your list all-inclusive? Have you found that your customers will still ask you about doing other jobs?? Your designs are great though! Did you create them, or did Bob "just do it?"

Can you share with us some of your experiences of why you decided to stopp offering the 100% guarantee?

I think that is all Bob's design. You don't need your own pictures. He has plenty for you to use.

i did the door hangers
bob did the postcards

and tahts a good point..i might take that guarantee off..i dont want to be pushed around and i dont want to seem unreasonable or rude when i turn things away

my list is bare bones
i always have ppl asking me if i can do this or that
if i can do it ill tell them
and if i cant do it ill tell them i can

even if its beyond my capabilities i can rent equipment
or subcontract it out and make some kind of profit off it

Do you find the same services keep popping up and if they do, do you then add them to your list or do you prefer to keep your list small and say something on the bottom that says 'if you don't see a service you need listed here, ask us.'

What's your view on that?
