    NO THE ONLY SPRINKLER SYSTEMS WE HAVE HERE ARE THE NEW AUTO ZONE THEY JUST BUILT 2 YEARS AGO AND THE ONES ON THE GOLF COURSES. I DO NOT HAVE A SKID SPRAYER I USE THE 3- 5 GAL BACKPACK SPRAYERS AND JUST BREW THE STUFF THE DAY BEFORE i AM GOING TO USE IT , BUT MAINLY ONLY DO SMALL YARDS DUE TO THE AMMOUNT OF MATERIAL NEEDED , I GET MY COMPOST FROM A LANDSCAPE SUPPLIER THERES IS BETTER THAN MINE I HAVE NOT BEEN DISCIPLINED ENOUGH TO TURN MINE ETC SO EASIER TO USE THERES , THEY CALL IT MUSHROOM COMPOST I USE IT FOR BOTH THE TEAS AND AS PART OF TOP DRESSING , BUT YEA WE RARELY DO THAT AS WELL LIKE YOU SAID PEOPLE JUST DON'T WANT TO SPEND THE MONEY. BUT WHEN THEY GET ON THE BEAUTIFUL YARD TRIP SINCE I DO NOT DEAL WITH CHEMICALS I EATHER HAVE TO TELL THEM TRU GREEN OR GIVE THEM A NATURAL PLAN TO HELP THE LAWN FROM THE SOIL UP. ON THE LAWNS I DO IT THOUGH IT DEFINATLY HELPS WHEN YOU COMBINE IT WITH AERATION . IF YOU RUN ACROSS ANYONE ON HERE THAT DOES THAT KIND OF WORK IN THE MORGANTOWN AREA LET ME KNOW , MOST OF THE COMPANY'S HERE MOW GRASS AS WELL AND SEEMS LIKE THERE SELLSMAN IS ALWAYS STEPPING ON MY TOES WHEN I THROW THEM BUSINESS.

    Well guess that you don't know where Burton WV is you take rt 7 out of star city it's one of those places that used to have a post office but now just a zipppp code

    We work in the same area

    Man backpacking compost tea got to be fun

    I do have 1 custmor that has a sprinkler system and after 6 years i findly got him to use it the right way this year

    I have used mushroom soil do you get it out at Richs Farms.We did one lawn in fairmont that we put down 3" and thats got to be the best yard

    Theres a place in clarksburg that you can get regular compost

    Yea i think your right and i can name others that do irrigation repair and 1 guy that does it part time

    But i don't see any irrigation systems in my travels in this area [on lawns ]

    Oh ok , i actually live in masontown wv wich is on the other side of route 7 , i have played a lot of bball at the shack wich is out that way , and last year i did the snow removal for the meadows but that is about as far that way as i go. If you do morgantown i may have some work for you if you are interested , like i said alot of my customers have expressed alot of interest in the fertilization etc , and yea the compost tea thing is a pain but when a customer wants something you have to provide something , and i do not like being one of those people who do it without the right licenses.

    Yes i usually buy most of my landscape stuff at rich farms , mark rich has always treated me well , and they seem to have a good quality of stuff. Pritty good price for contractors as well. I buy my mulch from masontown block though.
