    Like title says.... what could I donate? I'm full service landscaper and also do maintenance. We do irrigation as well as.some herbicides and ferts..my wife's on the committee and they get buisness all over town to donate.. they auction off the product to raise money... its a great form of advertising because if u donate a big ticket item... its talk of the ttown cause everyone wants to.bid on it... so what can I donate...? Its hard to decide.... things like free mowings...( its hard.to do that cause id have to somehow limit it to yard sizes..) can't just give free.mowing out to anyone's yard not knowing how big they r... id loose out horribly! We always have to put dollar amount on things we donate. Thanks!

    We do an aeration gift each year to a local preschool auction each year. Most of our homes are 1/4 acre lots.
