Lawn signs can be a popular and effective form of advertising landscaping businesses. While these signs may seem like a very basic option, it is still necessary to be strategic and thoughtful when you are using these signs. Otherwise, you may not get the results that you were wanting.

Keep The Signs Easy To Read

A common mistake that people will make when designing their lawn signs will be putting too much text on them. This can make it very difficult for individuals to fully read the signs as they pass by them. When choosing the information to put on the signs, you will want to be extremely thoughtful as you will need to include your company's name and the relevant contact information. While it may be tempting to place a tagline or company motto, you will need to be careful to avoid causing the sign to appear crowded and difficult to read.

Choose Bright Colors

Individuals that are in cars or walking along the sidewalk will likely be bombarded with distractions. To make sure that they are likely to see your signs, it can be beneficial to use a bright color scheme. For business leaders that are wanting to avoid having to design their own signage, there are services that can provide design assistance. This may include designing the layout of the signs as well as choosing the colors that are used. By taking advantage of these services, you can balance the need to have a sign that is able to catch the attention of those passing by while still retaining a professional appearance.

Ensure The Signs Are Securely Anchored

Most lawn signs will be secured in place with metal legs that can be inserted into the soil. When choosing legs for your signs, it may be tempting to opt for the shorter legs as they may be considerably cheaper. However, they may be far less effective at hold the signs in place during periods of high winds, heavy rains or hail. By choosing legs for the lawn signs that are longer, your signs will be able to better withstand these conditions so that they remain upright. For signs that you plan on having in place for weeks or months, these additional costs can greatly increase the effectiveness of your signs. If you have employees that will be placing the signs, you may want to spend a few minutes training employees to fully insert the signs in the ground. Otherwise, the longer legs may be of limited benefit.
