what would be the advantage to a costomer over not doing anything at all? All that would do is make the weeds and grass grow really fast.

I don't , its an interesting concept. There is a guy in my area who is an independent fert only guy. He is a UPS man full time and he and his wife do the fert. They also do some aeration. The business is great for them and they have recently purchased a large tanker to spray with. Brand new! There has to be money in it.

I do have 2 mowing crews, but I personally only fertilize. I have many (150+) that get fertilizer only- no mowing.

I hope to grow up one day to be like Lazer! Wow, 150 fert accounts, I'm sure very good money!

Those are the FERT ONLY accounts.

I have a total of 300-some that I fertilize. (12,000,000 sq. ft. or so)

Some are really big and that skews the numbers.
