I believe its a word processor file. But mainly all the flyer says is:
"Before & After Emerald Green Arborvitae's are Installed.
Arborvitae's, especially Emerald green are known as the most popular "Instant privacy" Tree
Why don't you add some privacy to your home & landscape

It also says:
$35 OFF any shrub Installation

Do you mean like flyers or door hangers to promote only that service?

What's your view on why you would want to focus on that?

It could be as simple as adding a new line to your current marketing material. Or you could take it as far as working with a local nursery to see if you could do their plant installs.

Here is a great article from my blog on pricing shrub installations.

How to price tree and shrub installations.

Some lawn care business owners double the cost of the plant to install it. So if they buy a shrub for $20, then they will plant it for $20 and bill $40 for the shrub and install of it.
