I am interested in really expanding my fertilizer side of the business. I currently have about 200 lawn cutting accounts. Of those accounts, we handle about 75 were we also do the fertilizer. Number 1: I am really starting to realize that the fertilizer business is much, much more profitable. For example (ballpark numbers): I can charge a "normal" residential customer $30 for a lawn cut. I can charge that same customer $40 for a fertilizer application. Doing the lawn cutting takes many more man hours per day versus fertilizing, probably triple, yet the fertilizer net revenue is probably better. Additionaly, the capital investment involved for lawn cutting is probably double that of a fertilizer operation. I am really starting to think, why am I doing lawn cutting at all? Am I missing anything here? I am really thinking of just focusing on the fertilizer side of the business and eventually dropping the cutting side. Number 2 - for those of you with good size fertilizer operations, how did you expand? I am trying to determine the best marketing approach. Flyers, telemarketing, etc. Thanks for any input.
