I could see where it could work in more northern climates....transition zone...no way!
I have customers that have been getting 6apps and their lawn looked pathetic.
That's just it...you nailed it. It's not how many apps u get it's the quality of the apps.
As far as your Scotts comment thatd Not even a comparison
#1-Professional product are far superior to Scott's as far as quality and performance. Especially weed control.
#2 -Timing is huge- Have you ever known a home owner to apply at the right time let alone the right rate?
#3 - Just said it....rate!!!! Most homeowners apply either a 2x rate or half as much as they should. Rarely are they on the money.
Your telling me that if a lawn truly needed 6 apps that Scotts wouldn't capitalize on it?
Our lawns look awesome with 4 apps
Yes as you go South I am sure you can sneak a few more apps in
Ohio and Indiana 6-7 apps is just way to many
To each his own and I will steal 6-7 apps customers all day!
