it was a regular customer-not mine. A client I might take on. But the company who did the work is a good size and I don't think he handled it ethically...or whatever. Just wanted some feedback or a general concenses of how it should've been handled. Never too late to learn.

You only have to buy 3 books which is about $47.00 i think, the one book has some really helpful info in it about identifing weeds. Go to this web site and you can get all the info on how to contact them. www.mda.mo.gov
I hope this helps.
I won't be taking the test until maybe next year, but I was wondering what the 3 books were, so I can get a head start on studying.

if you want to see it or maybe even get a sample they are located on the south outer road at clayton/40. If heading south on clayton make a left as if you are going to get on the highway and it will be on your right hand side across from the big brick building. The compost center is called Edie's after a previous mayor. I dont think they will have a problem with you picking up a sample.

I was driving by a potential client today and stopped a guy who was delivering it to a neighbor. Looks really nice-almost like dirt-very fine, very dark. I know exactly where Edies is. I know the guy who works the tennis club on that street, so been over there. Thanks for the info!

ok, but those bobcats and trenchers-mostly commercial work you're talking about? I'm talking strictly for residential...

I shoot for $35 most of the time. The harder the labor is the higher the rate goes.
