    As far as what grows where and in what conditions? Looking for some good toilet reading material.


    EDIT: on a second look at this post, please, no porn sites! :laugh:

    thanks, Tacoma! I love learning about this industry. I'm like a sponge for information, and I want to be as helpful a resource as I can be for my customers.

    oh, did you see my response in the Bad Boy thread? I thought you might be interested in the story on the Bad Boy Mowers Corporation.

    Yes it was very interesting, knowing the history does make a difference on how I would feel about the quality of a product. Sound's like a couple of really smart and business savvy guys.

    I'm really wanting to know where you came up with your avitar?

  7. Try Scotts Lawns "Your Guide To A Beautiful Yard". Lots of pics and IDs for grass and weeds. Solutions to probs. Zone stuff. I think it replaces the older "Ortho All About Lawns". Home Depot has it.

    Aloha, P.Y.S.

    Yes I would highly recommend "Scotts Lawns, your guide to a beautiful yard and The Lawn Bible" both available through Amazon with free shipping I think.
