    I am not really big on this crap but the wife is a community *****, I mean host and loves the "social aspect" of these things.

    Anyhow, I am handing out some info........any ideas or suggestions. I am trying to stray from the ordinary BS

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. You can even PM me if you are afraid to show your sensitive/creative/loving side.:)

    Photos, photos and more photos of before and after displaying your work.
    If you hardscape, have samples of the different types of material used.
    Have a dull blade and a properly sharpened one with before and after shots of the C3 turf you maintain showing why you do what you do.
    Be in uniform, have a detailed professional mower with professional hand tools (not the crap you buy at box stores), pruners, a pole saw, climbing gear for tree work, etc.
    Essentially use this time as an opportunity to educate the booth kickers on the difference between a scrub and a professional.
    And did I mention photos?
