    Hello,
    I have been using compost tea on my for my clients with very good results. I am looking to ramp up the this part of my business and possibly create a service dedicated to organic lawn and plant care. Anyone have any tips for marketing this kind of service?

    Your biggest obstacle to selling organics to others, is the statements about - "How the lawn may look worse for a couple of seasons before it gets better".

    The other obstacle is the use of a bridge program and the willingness to engage an IPM...

    Get over those 2 hurdles, make it cheaper and keep the utopian green planet philosophy out of your advertising, then you may have a chance...

    Word of mouth from your current customers is your best bet, IMO...
