    When do you guys start advertising for new clients, and when do you start looking to fertilize?

    I've started some advertising but the bulk of it will be done in March and later. Follow the labor for fertilizing, you can be too early when applying your crabgrass control. Also i find saturated soils are often an issue in march

    i usually start advertising in late may, by putting signs at local gas stations and eateries, i wont fertalize as i feel its a waste of time, but i know some do and swear by it, i just kinda feel that its a way for the guys with quick hands to make a quick dollar, imho
