I've been trying the door hangers and business cards on peoples doors. So far no luck really at all. I know it won't happen overnight but there has to be something I can do to give me a better chance of getting my name out and actually getting paying customers. I have a first mow free with a 4 week agreement as my "get in the door" offer, plus referral discounts and of course free estimates but not so much as a popcorn fart has blown my way. I need some imput on how I can reach people better.

The best way to do door hangers is get a 1000. Then hit the same houses 4 times each. Thats the way fortune 500s do it.

Avoid homes with crappy lawns;

ditches
small gates
obstacles
kids toys
.. junk yards
and hills

Flat open spaces are the BEST!

Over what time period do you recommend?

At least a few weeks.

This repetitious method takes into account that 1 time the flyer is tossed without looking at it. 1 time its looked at then tossed in the garbage. At least 1 time its considered. Then 1 time they call.
