So some friends of mine in the neighborhood accepted my offer to renovate their existing lawn. Get rid of the crabgrass, weeds, aerate, spread compost/soil, seed. Anyways they had tru green spraying their lawn and were VERY disappointed. They had twice as much crabgrass after they started treating then before so they told them to stop coming. I went over on Saturday and sprayed a MSMA and 2,4-D mixture. Went back over and in less then 48 hours all the crabgrass was very visibly turning brown and they were just amazed and happy. Well I was over there last night talking to them inside when the doorbell rings. One of them goes to the door and guess who?...................Mr tru green door to door sales man. He's wanting to know why they canceled and that he was coming back to say he could help them get that nice thick green lawn they've always wanted. My friend was like, you guys sprayed this lawn 4 times and nothing happened but more crabgrass. She said we had our friend spray 2 days ago 1 time and look at how almost all the crabgrass is dead. This bozo goes on to say, well, I don't know what he put down but you have to be very gentle with nature and it takes AT LEAST 10-12 applications before you can see a difference!. Oh my god, was that a taught response right out of his sales refusal rebuttal manual? The guy didn't know I was sitting within ear shot of him and I yelled, why don't you get your tree hugging, rip off ass outta here you pansy! I didn't really intend on saying that but I felt as though he was accusing me of dumping a 55 gallon drum of toxic waste on the lawn and leaving town. The guy left and about 2 minutes later came back again! Since small kids were around I bit my lip and stayed inside. I don't know what else he said or what was said to him but I just had to post that. I honestly have NEVER heard of friends or neighbors ever being satisfied with that company. It's always complaints. How are they still so big and in business? Maybe their commercial branch is what's carrying them.
