    Hello.

    I wanted to know what the key costs would be in moving from a commercial lawncare business to organic lawncare methods.

    I'm thinking the key areas would include the following:

    1. Training/education of organic methods for current staff.
    2. Increase in labour - as organic methods can be more labourious
    3. Organic fertilizers are more expensive than commercial ones

    Is there a place I can find more information on this topic ?

    Thank you in advance.
