    alright guys,
    i have this one customer and hes been calling me everyday to put down his fertilizer.. he has also asked me to dethatch his lawn when i go for the spring clean up sometime next week or the week after.. so my question is should i make him happy and go put the darn fertilizer down now or should i just wait till next week after i dethatch? thank you in advance

    Hey 314, If Your In Framigham, Ma Put Down The Fert (after) You Dethatch, (for Best Results). Get Rid Of All The Dead Grass Now, And Then Go Ahead With All The Lawn Maintenance.
