Most of my customers have never heard of this service. I only know of two other companies in our town of about 120k people that offer this service. We have a lot of good soil in our area, but there's several areas of red clay, as well.
My question is, what's the best way to inform the customer without being overbearing or too pushy? As I said before, I added that information on invoices, and I also put a craigslist ad out with information cited from the Ryan turf care and classen turf care (same company) websites. My next thought has been to do what Noon did and make a video explaining and demonstrating the service. What else can I do?

I would focus on promoting aeration for what it is meant to be and avoid telling customers that overseeding/aeration go together... bad reputation, right out of the gate...

Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
