Turf magizine nothing but advertisements.!!!

I've subscribed to the magizine looking for good reviews and insight on the industry. 98% of magizine is advertisements, is it just me or do you agree...?

A. it's FREE, what do you think pays for all the printing, paper, staff, and postage? And B. it's lawn care... If it was full of articles and news cover to cover they would be repeating the stuff after the first two months. There's just not that much new information to share out there. New Machines, Chemicals, and Irrigation products is about the only real news, and of course that turns into more ads.

Those advertisements have to be working though--I saw a few dealers listed in there that I didn't even known were near my area!

I don't mind the ads at all. They keep me entertained. It's like a catalog, hah.

They usually have an article in the regional section that is pretty interesting. Yes there is a lot of advertising but the price is right. There is usually an equipment review that is good to read.

Yes there is an article or two that is relevent to your region.
