    I work for a very small company that is wanting to offer lawn apps. We do basic stuff like roundup around buildings that it. Everything else is subed to a company that specializes in that. It has allowed my boss to get those accounts but he makes absolutely no money on it because he sometimes bids blind. I know not the smartest move but still.

    We have several accounts next year that will be needing this. I am talking like five acre apartment complexes. I need equipment, products, procedures, processes etc.. you get the point.

    I have taken and passed my commercial applicators licencse in Missouri and will be receiving the papers in the mail.

    All help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Matt:walking:

    Spend time doing "searches" on this site for different topics. Don't listen to every response. Go to the library and read. Lots of trial and error. A couple of things: when applying "step 1" crabgrass control, make sure you get all the corners of the lawn-especially along sidewalks and along street, this is where the crabgrass will germinate. When I started, I missed the spots sometimes.
