Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I would have to say sat. between 10am & 2pm, this give people time to sleep in, and wake up and think a while to themselves they really dont want to go mow the lawn, ya hit them at the rt time i think, when i have had the best success with flyers and door hangers.

Sherman, would this be on the weekends? Did you ever experiment with going door to door after work hours or on weekends?

hmm... I was thinking the same thing. My friend suggested Sunday, but Saturday could work as well. I have to get a good flyer made up soon, so I can go door to door

I try to get out on thurs or fri evenings, becouse most people want thier lawns cut before the weekend around here, plus friday is payday so I catch em when thier pockets arent so cheap.
by sat and sun. thire already doing the lawn work themselves becouse there off from work and sittin at home with nothing to do.
no sure how accurate this is but thats how I see it.

what if they get paid every other friday ??? You have to know which Friday is pay day

That is a good theory though, most homeowners generally don't work weekends, and thats their time for yard work. So many options
