Keep in mind before you spend a ton of money getting lawn signs, code enforcement in my area regularly takes down those road signs. At most you may get a couple days if they are near the street. Try to put them up near the houses of the customers.

I had planned on putting them near the the front walkway, but they aren't 100% for certain yet.

I did splurge a bit for a logo...but $150 for high end graphic work is quite reasonable, and something that is a long term investment.

I'm thinking flyer mailers/drops around my neighborhood is going to be my first stop...anyone have some suggestions? I'm thinking of concentrating my efforts in smaller areas first to minimize my travel time, good/bad idea?

Sounds good to me. Get out and meet the home owners in the area you want to service and hand them a piece of your marketing material. Then also do this to the neighbors of your current customers. Keep your routes tight and that will help you minimize expenses and maximize profits.
