I haven't posted in a long time but I couldn't help but tell someone in the business this.

I get home tonight at 5pm, and in the midst of the snow storm, with 2 inches already down in 2 hours, I see something on my neighbor's door. It's a bag from Chemlawn. And sure enough there's a stake in the yard. Chemlawn fertilized his yard today. Now there's almost 6 inches of snow on top. Freakin' classic.

Just wondering if anyone knows of a nursery or somewhere to buy mulch by the yard near Big Rapids. I have been trying to find a new place since the guy I got it from last year is now doing landscaping and I don't think I want to buyt from him when he is my competition.
