    I posted in Herbicide but no responses yet.
    Has anyone heard of or dealt with a franchise company named Spray Green?
    Are they better than TruGreen or Scott's?

    I found a franchisee on another forum site and he states that their formula works well, but does not live up to the "Reduces Thatch build up" as they claim, and he did also state that the formula needs to be sprayed each and every month during the growing season, because afterall it is a liquid and doesn't last as long as a granular.
    I asked for a product label to see what the ingredients are and to see if its truely 100% organic as claimed, he has not reponded, LOL

    Thanks a lot. was the forum on this site? Doesn't the USDA regulate what can be called "organic" in these products like it does in the food industry?

    I'm not sure what the regulations are, but they sure do keep their product hush, hush, I emailed a franchisee and all he gave me was a copy of the MSDS, which shows nothing on the ingredients, and when I replied to ask for a copy of the ingredients or the label, he hasn't replied and I sent 2 emails, LOL, they must have something to hide. I even asked, what if a potential customer asked to see the product label to verify the ingredients are 100% organic as stated, wouldn't you provide it for them? HE never replied.

    No not really. I would like to see the lawns that receive their "juice". However if it doesn't control weeds(which it doesn't claim to do) than it's not for me. We have to use weed control here so fert. alone wouldn't be sufficient. Let me know if you find out anything.
