    Hey guys,

    I am in the process of buying out a gentleman(retiring) that did lawn application only. Purchasing his customer list and equipment.

    This gentleman has been in the business for 30 years and ONLY uses liquid slow release fertilizer. 85% of his 125 customers do three applications a year. (spring, summer, fall)

    My business does a 5 step program with granular fertilizer.

    What should I expect from his customer if I try to switch them over to a dry fertilizer?

    Does anyone run a dry and liquid fertilizer operation? If so, how do you know which properties to apply granular/liquid?

    Looking for some advice or insight to help me prepare for this coming spring. Thanks!

    It should not be to hard to flip them liquid greens up faster but runs out sooner. You must be able to build trust with them that there lawn will be better than ever before and you must do it. If it was me I may have to pass on the offer I may not turn around the amount of People from three apps to five. They going to think why pay more when I liked what I had. But they may be happier Sorry I may not have helped
