I was just messing around in photoshop. Maybe it will give you some creative ideas to run with further.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Well as a woman lawn care owner I am sorry I missed the beginning of this post but I have been down and out with a horrible cold.
I agree with everything the guys have said and I am just a baby when it comes to the lawn care business (started June 2007) but they are 100% on the money.
I am sorry about the divorce and the trash talking. I have been there and wow does it suck when kids are involved but you have to think of yourself and them. If he wants to trash talk then let him, you have great people on this forum that can and will help. If ever need someone to talk to I have been there and it was horrible but I am here and I am married again to a great guy. Keep your head up and follow the great advice here. I was really overwhelmed with how great everyone was in the suggestion and help offered. Ya'll are awesome!
I was curious by one of the posts regarding the government contracts and women owned businesses? Are these considered commercial contracts and how would someone else go about finding information on it?
Again, keep your head up and everything will work out great!

Here is a door hanger concept that plays up the family owned and operated angle as well as includes pink elements and a woman's touch element.

Maybe something like will get you thinking of more creative marketing ideas.

Then maybe you could go with an article concept, something along these lines to send out to the local press in hopes they pick up on it and publish it.
