'Stealing work' is bit strong - we are talking about my neighbor's account right next door. My neighbor said I could treat his lawn again this year, on a handshake. He said first he was having 'his buddy' dethatch the lawn. Fine. (I offer tine raking but I was like who cares let the ding-dong get it done then I will do 1st round). Turns out that he put down fert+pre right after he power raked and bagged. My neighbor says he did not ask the guy to do that. I asked my neighbor if his buddy is lic. to apply. He said he didn't have a clue. We left it at that, peaceful like. Thats all the facts jack.
I should go put one of my flags on the lawn, call the guy, and say "looks like you forgot to flag after your illegal app, so I stuck one in for you"
