Yea they are really different. In Memphis you need to mulch, remove leftover leaves, weed beds, trim hedges, sometimes scalp bermuda grass. On our flyers we offer a list of services on that back that include most of those things.
For me chemicals are out of the question and not expected. In tennessee you have to have worked under a liscensed company for two years before you can get a liscense. Ill never do that so no chemicals here. I do have an ongoing relationship with a fertilizer/chemical company that I refer everyone too.
