    Hopefully where you conduct business, this is not happening.

    In my area TGCL is offering special pricing on the first treatment of the season, $30 for smaller lawns.

    Just talked to one of my potential customers this morning......

    "I'd like to go with your service but other companies are offering a $30 first application" My standard rate for this customer would be $55. Mind you that the first app in this area is always preemergent, which is one of the most expensive of the year.

    This puts me in a compromising position to say the least.

    maybe that explains why I have seen them putting straight fert with no Pre-m? they really are giving them much for the $30.00. I'm sure the price will increase for rounds 2-7
