You still see the "Chem" name around?? Not here for many years. I was told thats because they don't want people thinking "Chemicals" on their lawn. Are customer's that dumb? I guess so. As for TruGreen prepay etc....... I just spoke with a customer that I've had for several years doing the snow and sprinklers for them. They've been wanting to go with me for fert too. I guess TruGreen signed their 2014 contract with the corp office with out telling the local manager way back in Oct or Nov 2013. The local guy aint happy but he has little control unless we get our prices in early. I know I can match and provide a superior service.
