I'm thinking of offering an organic lawn service, I've thought about it for the last few years but have remained in hardscaping. So now I've figured out I just need to start a whole new maintenance biz and build it up over the next few years.

I think its insane to spray chemicals on lawns, I'm no hippie treehugger but I draw the line with spraying chemicals all over the commuunity just so people can have green lawns. Seems like longterm organic would be cheaper; as the soil gets built up there'd be less of a need for extra care, healthy soil, healthy lawn. Chemicals are like a surface treatment, like steroids for lawns, not really building up the soil but just artificially turning the lawn green, the lawn gets addicted and reapplication is ongoing, and the chem co's love that!
