      I'm Chris and I'm a software developer from Darien. I'm thinking about developing an application for lawn service businesses this summer. I'm not trying to sell you a product or service of mine, I'm just looking for some advice on the industry right now.

      What are the top three problems you are facing today that you'd LOVE someone else to solve? Perhaps your customers aren't paying you on time, scheduling your services is stressful, or it could be that you hate making invoices for your customers. Whatever it is, I'd love to hear about it.

      Depends on the size of the Yard. If a typical yard is about 3 to 5K of turf I get about 6 yards a tank full. I use a 2 GPM gun.

      I have gone to on some yards not adding post emergents to the mix as the weeds ar enow few. I use a hand held for that. Smaller tanks gives me more options for custom mixes depending on where the yard is on the program.

      I use a hoist to lift the tank in and out of the truck. I can take the tank of the sprayer easy too. The big cost is the hose. I really need about 200 feet of hose. I had a 200 gallon unit with 300 feet of hose on my last rig.

      How many yards do you get out of a 50 gal tank.

      Sorry it took so long to get back work has been crazy. I am going to class on aug 15 to get certified. Looking at a 200 gal skid sprayer. What size do you recommend? I am looking for suggestions on a good spray schedule and what you use to spray. Also any recommendations on how to get new business would be great I plan on doing door hangers and phone book ads. Any good books or classes would also be of help.
