That is a good point Bill. Fairly simple solution that gets to the heart of the problem tipping the scale in our favour

Its called consultative selling
If you work with your customer as a consultant, defining parameters, setting expectations you will be in much better shape as a company

There is no one else that will be able to work with your customer that way, in fact they will probably call you to ask if its Okay to speak to someone else

Is that the speech I have been giving here for a couple of years?

This is definitely something Ive been trying to do a lot of research on but my findings (besides those few companies posted) are slim.

This will indeed be an interesting year to say the least!

Does anyone ever overseed on a regular basis to eliminate the need for so much weed control?
Sometimes I think I am the only one.

Let me state it this way then. Does anyone have lawns that they overseed and overseed yet continue to have weed prolems, year after year?
