    Do any LawnSite members order chemicals online? Has the experience been positive or negative and the reason(s) why? Thanks

    Lesco has a pretty neat online ordering system. Granted, you'd have to go pick it up, but you can do everything from your home. Get prices, order, and even pay. Tell them what time you want to pick it up, they'll have it ready.
    Drive in, pick it up and go..

    I have to say no, because I like having someone that I can call up and ask a question, knowing that I can trust the source. I don't have a clue who's on the other side of the net ... ya know?

    Also, you should be able to get just as good of a price going to a brick and mortar facility ... since it's coming from one anyway.

    The price of shipping kills the deal

    I agree 100%, Lesco is way out-of-line with their pricing!
