    9. I saw another landscape company doing the same thing and thought it looked good.
    8. My company spent $149 on the Ortho Problem Solver book.
    7. An old man down at the coffee shop recommended it.
    6. One of our laborers did it by accident and the Supervisor liked it and took credit for it.
    5. I heard a college professor talk about it at an all-day seminar.
    4. My wife read about it in Southern Living magazine.
    3. I was out sick one day and watched the Garden Channel for 8 straight hours.
    2. My company spent $25,000 on a new computer program that recommended it.

    Reason #2 is my favorite. I need to keep a list of those companies so I can scarf up their equipment at the foreclosure sale.
