May not be the best approach.
There may be some things that you do not know, and it never hurts to reinforce what you do know.

Thats the approach that I take during seminars, classes, etc.

Valley Crest is actually one of the largest Green Industry Full Service Companies in the country. They have branches scattered all over the place. Right there with Brickmann, TruGreen, et al.

Valleycrest is the largest landscape contractor in the US. I think I read that they had sales of $800-900 million last year.
