    I was at my local Lesco yesterday and the manager showed me compost tea they now carry made by Sustaine. It's a 21 gram tea bag you put into a watering can. lmao:laugh::laughing:

    it's made from composted turkey litter and potassium sufate. that's it!!

    50 bags for $70

    Our Lesco moved into the JDL shop. Service is proving to SUCK so far this winter/spring.

    Lesco, is a great part of my business on the hydroseeding end. I have dealt with a couple Locations other then my local lesco and they wernt that great, but my local guy is awsome. I think it all has to do with the manager of that store.

    Niether Sustaine nor Lesco's are interested in organics anymore than TGCL.
    They want to be relevant, and continue gaining income, is all.

    How many people will buy into it? Lots.

    Actually, i Have heard from a very reliable source, that True Green And ChemLawn, are trying to get into the organic field as fast as possible.
    I cant tell how i have heard, but the source is more then trust worthy.

    In 2007, their goal was to have 5% of their clients in 2 or 3 regions by spring 2009 on some kind of organic program.
