Are you hoping that people are curious enough to call - even if they aren't sure WTF a "Breeze Enterprise" is?


It looks great. I just have my doubts that anyone would make the connection to a lawn service.

I am with hedge on this one ,not really sure what the multi-coloured star thingy represents .
On second thought ,cheese might be the smartest dude ever ....... I think he decided he would make a generic sign ,then when a customer calls ,he figures out what they want [could be a massage ,a new toilet installed ,a date for friday night ,a lobotomy ,etc etc ,] and instantly thats what his business specializes in ,at the time at least .Holy crap ,I might have to try that myself!

Pretty much how I want to grow, is to do multiple things. A name is a name.

also,

"ENTRETIEN DE PELOUSE" = "LAWN MAINTENANCE".

lol <3

I totally understand where you are coming from, but I do not want to be limited to one service forever by name.

That star thing is my logo, and it's a pinwheel.

Did you ask your customers how they feel about you posting signs on their property?

It may be a geographical thing, you rarely see any type of sign like that around here. I would not be ok with it so I would never ask anyone to put signs up.

All of them would like signs put up. I suppose it gives them a way to show off, and/or to help us out. Plus, it means we technically have to do our best work to present to passerby's.


Also, you don't see it because no one has done it for lawn maintenance alone, now there is me!

Here you have to get a permit from the city & it is $25 per sign per month. Some places they really don't like the signs.

I get the whole "I do various things" idea, but really, the sign doesn't "say" anything.

With repetition, you will begin to brand yourself with that image, but until then, it's just a sign that says nothing. So long as you understand that, go for it.

I put a yard sign up while I'm working, but I don't leave it behind. People DO take notice over time.
