    Ya they are taking a share of TG/CL's market of homeowners who like that kind of thing.
    I personally think the yellow trucks are ugly.

    It's big over here in Ontario too. They offer a lot of support for the Dealers including 1-800 numbers, of course the Dealer pays for all that help I'm sure. I get a few lawns from them but I usually refer more to them than I get back. I send all the really fussy customers to them you know, the ones that you can never seem to please. Then a few years later they get tired of paying more money for the same results and they will call me again. By this time they are a little better trained and I don't have to make multipe trips back for every single weed.
