    The first thing you need to do is to make sure you meek the states requirements for licensing and certification , then contact Lesco. My advise is keep the nitrogen level down in the Spring.

    Roberts, whats the deal with KS and MO? I live in KS but right over the border. If I decided to go on the MO side do I have to get certified my MO also?

    By the way my name is Trent, Co. name is Roberts Turf, I get that a lot. Missouri and Kansas have a reciprocal agreement, you do not have to re-test just have to apply to Missouri Ag. Prove insurance, and certification and pay your fee. It's a lot more expensive for me to apply in Kansas than for you in Missouri. I pay 135.00 + 35.00. I think you don't pay near that to apply in Missouri. We are almost done in Kansas because of our growth in Eastern Jackson Co.

    I am just a girl trying to take care of the lawn. I have chemlawn doing the grass. I just called them and told them to put down the granules first because of all the rain, plus I already watered. Was that the right thing to do? All this dead grass, is this thatch that I should be raking up? OR, is that just dormant grass and leave it alone?? It looks brown or yellow and dead to me. I don't have a bunch of money to spend on tools. I have a manual aireater that I can't get the clumps of dirt out of. I tryed soaking and and a screwdriver to get it out. Should I have my soil tested or is that something chemlawn should be doing? I don't even know what kind of grass I have. Whatever I have, it always looks the second best on the street. However, I'm just winging it.

    Your first mistake was calling Chemlawn. You can find someone here who goes to KCMO. I personally dont but there are plenty that do. Get your money back and fire them.
