    I'm looking to add soil sampling to my LCO business and wondering if anyone had any input. I know how to sample and Lesco can do the lab work, but just wondering if anyone had any ideas on a flyer or post card for my customers. Thanks

    Not specifically...

    But now that you mention Lesco; at the location they used to be before they moved a few years ago in Cincinnati, they used to have a poster up on the wall that said :
    "Professional Soil Sampling Offered Here"

    And, it of course had nice graphics of soil cores and a soil probe, etc...

    but, uh :rolleyes:...the calculated irony was that this poster was right above the entrance to the store's bathroom! :laugh::laugh::laugh:
     
  3. If you are applying fertilizers, I believe its the responsible thing to do! This should be included in your program! Done yearly until soil chemistry is correct.

    Remember, when developing an annuel program, make sure you take into account the amount of sulfer and calcium that is being applied with the fertilizer, as they will have an effect on soil ph. Most fertilizers contain more sulfur than calcium, and this is important to reralize.
