    Are there any people in here that make a living doing only fertilizer and pesticide application only and are only doing it solo or maybe one employee? I am curious as to what kind of living someone can make doing that in the Indiana zone.... Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I have a organic lawn, tree, shrub company as well as a traditional landscape maint. design install company.

    I know the organic end if done right and sold right can make lots of money.
    The synthetic fertilizers are good but in the long run organics are better. I would recommend going and getting a truck a Lesco push spreader, and a 50-100 gallon spray tank throw it all in the truck and running a business.

    follow the pesticide business license procedures and all as well as insurance...but i have looked into the franchises their not for me...Thats my 2 cents.......:usflag:
