bermuda/fescue programs for 8 treatments?

Ok as you may know im just trying to get into the business and trying to ask tons a questions. i hope i am not bothering anyone.

Is there a general program you use for the bermuda and fescue lawns? like app 1 this app 2 this? ect.... Before you leave the house to spray for the day or to put granulars out do you know what your putting on each yard and is it the same thing on every yard for that time of year? and if so do you mind posting what you put out app 1-8? or is it just not that easy. Like i said im just now getting into the business i want to start in a year and im trying to learn all i can. thanks in advance for all replys!!

You're going to have a hard time finding people who will tell you their exact program. For me 8 is a lot on fescue unless you are including fungicide but it all depends on you client base, watering ability, and temperatures.

We don't put 8 apps on any of our yards. We simply don't need that in our area. The only company I know in our area that has that many apps is Trugreen (and their reputation is bad here).
