When the cats away

I see you guys have been busy while I was out of the office! LOL...

Thank you to those defending Turf magazine. Our ratio's are consistent with all other controlled circ publications as required by the USPS. I believe it's 60% advertising to 40% editorial. There are no exceptions if you are mailing 2nd class.

I think debate and competition is healthy for any business, so keep up the fire guys!

Well throw the thing out then. Jeez

I have never seen so many threads come up whining about a free magazine.

They dont say anything that theyre not.

They dont advertise as being the "landscaping bible" information filled reference book.

They are an advertising magazine, with a couple of interesting articles thrown in there.

I like it, I flip through it. Sometimes I toss it after 30 seconds other times I read the whole thing.
