My brother is wanting me to go into the fert/apps lawn service with him. My business that I have now is well maintained (good employee's) and I could spare some time for a bussiness start up. He is already in the green industy, but wants to concertrate on the apps side. Can anyone give me the pros and cons to this side of the industy?

PRO's: * More $$$
* More respect than a grass cutter
* More flexibility than mowing
* Less equipment turnover

CON's *Poor results without industry experience
* Purchase/storage of chemicals (EPA reg's)
* Constant physical contact with chemicals
* Many more customers to deal with
I still prefer it to maintenance. I have been doing it for 12 years and I guess I'm just used to it all.
