Hi Guys --- David @ TURF Mag here . . .

I'm glad you like the cover. That's my dad's old Murray mower in the trunk.

For those of you who do not (yet) have your Sub to TURF, here's my editorial for the May issue (with apologies to David Letterman).

Ten Ways to Tell Your Lawn Care Company is a Scrub

10 – His company slogan is “Insurance? We don’t need no stinkin’ insurance.”

9 – He cancels your cutting this week because his mom grounded him.

8 – Out of habit, he’s always asking you “do you want fries with that?”

7 – He giggles every time you say “core aeration.”

6 – His business cards have the name of his rock band scratched out and “lawn care” written in black marker .

5 – His mower costs less than his sneakers.

4 – He giggles when you ask for a “dethatching.”

3 – He insists on calling you “Dude.”

2 – When you ask if he’s certified, he says “totally.”

And, the number one way you can tell your lawn care company is a scrub:

1 – You catch him, “watering the lawn.”
