When you have systems, you have control.

If youíre born poor, itís not your mistake. But if you die poor, it is your mistake.

Have you tried JRK Seed lately? JRK seems to be getting serious about selling turf products these days and have some really good pricing on Lebanon MESA fert as well as chem. Their grass seed is much better than Twin City Seed and cheaper than JDL/Lesco.(go figure)

There is one store in Eagan and a new store out in Loretto. If you want to talk to someone who knows the LCO business at either location you have to know who to talk to because JRK has different specialties.(i.e bird seed, hay and pasture seed) For turf care at Eagan, call 651-285-7150 and for turf care at Loretto call 763-913-7872.

If you need irrigation parts then JDL is your best bet but otherwise they are just too expensive on most LCO products.

I'll have to look into them. What's your company name, being that you're from Brooklyn Park, I'm out of Champlin.

I am with All Metro out of Columbia Heights as a consultant for the most part but I help out on certain projects here and there for almost anyone.

Oh ok, makes sense. I haven't heard of All Metro but there's thousands of companies around the metro.

I go to the one in Burnsville. They have a few more locations: Ham Lake, White Bear Lake, Maplewood and I think Edina.

$24 a bag for 24-0-11 2FE1MN from JDL in MN??? OUCH! JRK is at $14.50 a bag for Lebanon 20-0-5 30% MESA 1FE and $17.80 a bag on Lebanon 25-0-5 51% MESA 1F They also have some EC Grow products. Also, watch your 2,4,D (three-way) prices climb from JDL very soon.
