Lawn Care Service with Celsius

Since I am Joe Blow homeowner and can't buy Celsius, anyone know of a lawn care service in the St. Petersburg area that uses it?

Just put in a Captiva SA lawn in, in March, after roundup and rototilling it, and I have crabgrass and buttonweed growing like crazy.

Herdofem - you should be able to purchase Celsius at the Lesco in Tampa.

Gregory, 85 is the price. It is a set price, doesn't change no matter who is buying. There are a few products that JDL does this with, the 1lb bottle of heritage is the same way.

Those are the agency priced products. Bayer, BASF and Syngenta do this on their recently released products that are not off patent chemistry. Everyone pays a fair price for the product. No special deals for customer B at JDL because that guy buys 15 tons of fertilizer and 275 gallons of Three Way every year.

Agency price is nothing new to many industries. Even Wally World can't discount certain items because of FAIR TRADE agreements. It is my understanding that the manufacture owns the inventory, sets the price and the supplier is there agent. Therefore the name Agency price.
