    Dear Fertilizer man,

    Can you please stop treating the already 2 foot tall grass that can not be even walked on let alone mowed yet.

    No, I cannot. The boss says is I want my $ 8.50 an hour I have to spray this stuff on this lawn. I am not allowed to look at condition, moisture or length of grass.

    Sorry
    Fert Man

    i can understand that wish, but they gotta make their money, they have no concern for you.

    that is why you do it yourself so you have control of those things.

    look into it,

    We have about 80% of our customer's with a local company who is like night and day but there are still a few who liked the $23.00 per app price (about 7-8k sqft.)

    I totally agree. Heck, even if you do show up, go a little lighter on the material being spread. And the dam* homeowners are no better. Why would they want a lawn that needs to be cut every three days??? They need to tell the big company's to hold off on the applications for a while. :dizzy:

    You guys still getting hammered with rain? Just south here in MD we went from non stop rain to the lawns are now burning up in 1 1/2 weeks time. 97 tomorrow and 98 to 99 thursday and they will be toast. Might get some rain friday and a little this weekend. I am absolutely shocked our lawns have gone down hill this fast. It was so wet for so long and with the sudden heat and dry most lawns here are diseased pretty bad.

    I hear you, I live in catonsville, I was nonstop busy, not I haven't cut anything in 3 days. Lawns that needed cut every 7 days haven't even grown any in 7 days. I wish it would rain already.

    My thoughts exactly!!!!....only I've been able to mow. The one week growth is out of control!!


    Also.....I consider fert and squirt guys in the same category as used car salesmen. They will sell you the shoes you walk in on.
