    I cut the model homes for a local builder. My friend is the commercial account manager at the Chemlawn which ferts the model homes. All last year I kept telling him the model home lawn looks bad. Another builder has a model home next to mine, and their lawn looks great! Finally,in September he realized that his crew was fertilizing the wrong model home all year. The other model home had Lawn Doctor plus free Chemlawn treatments.

    While i never worked on the wrong property, I did make an error in writing an address that I was going to visit to prepare a quote. I wrote 319 instead of 379, or something to that effect. I stopped at the incorrect house, rang the bell, and told introduced myself. After a little confusion, we figured out my mistake. As it turns out, the house I was at was looking for someone to take care of some landscape work. I prepared a quote for them as well. (didn't get either job).
