    I'm looking for help setting up a good lawn fertilization program.This would pertain to mostly bermuda lawns. Also some lawns with mixtures of different grasses ie, bahaia, bermuda,st. augustine....how do you handle these?
    Another thing...how does search work? I tried to search on this and got no matches, then I got matches that had nothing to do with topic???

    Welcome to LawnSite.com. I moved this thread to the Pesticide Application Forum with a redirect, where it will get more views and this is where it belongs also. We have some members that only do Apps and might not go to the commercial forum which is mostly for the lawn cutting part of the green industry. I'm up in the Chicago area, so I'm not any help on these kinds of grasses.

    Welcome aboard! Congratulations on your first post. If you want to develop a good lawn app. program, look in the phone book or ask another lawn care company where to find a Lesco dealer. The folks at Lesco will help you to develop a good plan for free. Even if you don't buy there product. They haven't steered me wron yet. Good luck.
    Bill!

    Bill lives in Pineville, located in Charlotte, Lesco is located there and N. Charlotte. Not sure about Pinehurst, I would think with all the golf courses around you I would think you would find one.

    Lawndoctor,
    I would be very surprised if Lesco didn't have a store near you. If not, they have stores on wheels. Eighteen wheelers that go around to golf courses an such. You can contact Lesco customer service at 1-800-321-5325. They will point you to the closest store, or give you info on the store on wheels.
    Good luck, Bill!
