    I currently have a growing lawncare business but currently only do mowing.. Each season I always get calls from people asking if I fertilize, I feel like I am losing good money here.. Can I offer a good quality service by using only granular or do I need to get into the liquid????

    Granular for everything except for weed control and certain fungicides.

    Spray systems can range used from 1500 to 4K..depending on size, etc. .then there are other options like the Z Sprays and Perma Greens which go from 4k upwards. Im sure you are aware, just make sure you are liscensed to apply.

    I will get the license over the winter, I was planning on doing some fertilizing this year but didn't realize my agriculture application license was not what I needed..

    I bought a Lesco spreader a few months ago, using this season to tinker with it on my free time, neighbors and friends must think I am insane asking them to fertilize their yards for free.. :)
