It is great for him that he has clients willing to pay 35$ per hour to hand weed their lawns. It just does not seem practical. Is there something you use for weeds besides corn gluten?
Have your boss read this article in the latest issue of Turf.

While neither Fiesta nor ADIOS are technically "organic", both of these weed control products have minimal health or environmental concerns.

Some fine tuning of cultural practises will also go a long way in reducing turf grass weeds.
