    I am curious about where you get your products. I usually just go through the local nurseyman to get my fertilizations products and he knocks off 25% from the sticker price..but I still think that its way to high. I was wondering:

    how many of you go through the manufactor instead of the dealer?

    about how much cheaper is it?

    about what are the costs involved in doing it that way? Like is there a minimum that you have to order or what.

    I order from lesco, they knock a couple $ off a bag, will deliver also if you buy a pallet, but The guy I know at the lesco I go to has a cabin close by so he would bring it up.

    Lesco !!! You can order one bag or 50, whatever quantity you need. My guys are 1 hr. 45 min. drive for me but have trucks come down to my area to provide product to the golf courses. They are cool enough to include me, even if I just need 5 bags of pre M and 3 bags of seed. Awesome. Go to www.lesco.com and you can find the lesco closest to you via zip code - if you didn't know :)
