    I have purchased some information/expertise from "Green Industry Consultants" and here are my thoughts:If you are "new" in the industry, then the information is very good. However, if you have "substantial" experience in this industry, ask for a sample before buying! Most of the "expertise" you can do yourself if you take the time to write them down or perform "time-analysis" per job.

    My thoughts are for "constructive criticism" only!

    Just asking for trouble with that last statement...like telling a kid not to touch something.:D

    Why purchase any information when lawnsite is FREE!!!

    Lone Star, I disagree with your statement.

    I 'am "targeting" certain people, who know who they are, to make sure they provide some sampling of their information so that we may make a better/more informed decision prior to making a purchasing decision!

    what statement are you dissagreeing with?

    I knew what you were talking about before you emailed me and I wouldn't refer to it as "information", but a "product". Again I state that information in this industry can be found here on lawnsite which is free to everyone to learn and grow, newbie or vetern.

    I have bought these information books and I believe they are a rip off too.

    Just my opinion.
