    If you are willing to pay travel time I will come treat your yard. But I am not about to give away my proprietary Intellectual Property. The Glyphosate post was intended as Humor.

    Ric,

    I'm in Cape Coral. Are you within reasonable distance from Cape Coral/Fort Myers?

    Would love to put the Bermuda asleep in my St. Augustine forever if possible.

    Thanks,

    I am not that far from you but would still need travel time. What Gregory doesn't say or realize is how expensive the Chemicals are. But they are still cheaper than a Sod Cutter and new sod. Gregory is a very "Green Industry" knowledgeable Home owner who loves his yard. His full time Job is service writer for a Large Commercial Truck Repair Company. We have traded out services for several years now and I still owe him big time. But he isn't the type to count who is a head.

    Given the Current Demographics/Economics of the Cape, It is not on top of anyone's favorite Marketing Areas. Just a little back ground is Abomination's first Trip was to the Cape because it had the Highest Foreclosure rate in the USA. However if you can give me your E mail or Phone number I will try and contact you.

    ric in my opinion this is a better way to go i know the chemicals arent the cheapest in the world. but if you go the roundup and remove sod path your new sod might have some in it and you are back to square one...

    Ric,

    Let me know how to get a visitor message to you with my email. Tried to find a way through your profile, but looks like that might be disabled. Can't post it here moderator said.
