    The price for organic is not to steep...It includes an aeration and overseeding, 5 organic fertilizers and a lime...

    BTW Green Lawn is the largest non-franchised lawncare company in Ontario, you should give them a chance as the service is quite good.

    As well as the magnet you most have recieved a free ducks unlimited membership as well as a bag of grass seed?

    "Green Lawn is the largest non-franchised lawncare company in Ontario"

    But, according to their own website they are involved in franchising!!

    "Green Lawn CareĀ™ is a part of the FirstService Corporation, who are the leaders in the rapidly growing service sector.
    First Service Corporation provides a variety of property and business services, including:
    Community association management, security, lawn care, pool maintenance, janitorial services, franchising, data processing and trade material fulfillment - to corporate, government, and residential customers throughout North America.

    first, what if i dont need a lime application?

    second, i dont see how a 'totally organic' program can cost twice as much as 'program#2 weed and feed.

    I was a bit blunt in my use of the term 'ridiculous' in my previous post, but i cant see how a customer would spend twice as much for the 'natural choice organic' with no weed control.

    Im sure the program is effective, i just wonder about the pricing.

    i doubt the necessity of 5 applications of 'totally organic' fertilizer.

    Thats my perspective...

    If you don't need a lime, you could just order there standard organic fert program for around $190-$200. Not too much of an increase in my mind from Program 2...

    These guys must be a franchise in Canada. I spied this truck last year when I went to Sault St. Marie for a while. How do their prices compare?

    Yes nutri lawn is a franchise in canada. We don't have one here but they are in some of the major cities in our province. I believe they offer chemical and organic programs.
