Lawn Care In WV Any One From WV How Is Business? Has Any One Started Advertising Yet?

Just wanted to see if any lawn care company's from West Virginia were on here and if so how you guys were fairing this winter. Has any one started advertising yet? Also in this region for hills does everyone else use a walk behind or has anyone went over to the standers yet for slopes?

Well i would guess out of 8th or so people on here that there are some from WV that don't post

Just set back in the dark and watch

I know of a guy from Bridgeport that does come on here

So what do you do just mow and plow snow

I am Solo and for the most part just treat yards

Cool , alot of customers have been asking me to start fertilizing lawns but i don't know what all licenses you need in wv to do that? What kind of licenses do you have to keep and is it a pain to get the licenses?

I have never used compost tea but sounds good

I have done some top dressing but very limted people just don't want to spend that money. Always have good results with top dressing

I do use organic fert on some jobs

Contractors lic and plumming i know what you mean I had to take collage courses to get my pesticide lic and it was a little tough do you see much sprinkler systems around here

So i take it that you have skid sprayer to spray comost tea do you like brew your own
