Gateway is out in full force again. I just got a flyer on the door by some punk looking kid that kept cutting across everyone's lots.

$38 for aerating! Oh, by the way, "they pull the deepest plugs."

we have 4 people lined up for aerating at our price that used gateway in the fall. The plugs where not even a 1/4 inch.

They all realised they got what they paid for. The same words came out of everyone of their mouths. They where only here for like five minutes.

LOL

Most intelligent people know you get what you pay for...if people still go with gateway...then I don't want them as a customer because they are the people that are so cheap. I don't even want old gateway customers...they aren't what I look for.

I'd agree with you. My neighbor had them do it and the kid showed up in some kind of 4 door car with the aerator in his trunk. He had Gateway Aeration magnets on it too. He ran around the yard for about ten minutes and was done. Pretty much the same story as everyone else.
