    A commercial customer wants to add fertilization to his contract, but he only wants 2 applications- one in the spring and one in the fall. We sub out our fertilization to TG, so my question is which applications do you recommend. Early spring with pre-emergent or late spring with weed control, early fall or late fall. Thanks for your help

    subbing to TG is a bad idea.hammer

    I suggest a pre-m early and a good fert in sept.

    I don't care for Tru-Green, but their prices are good. I only use them for my commercial accounts and they haven't screwed anything up in 3 years. So I will use them until then.

    I wont let any of my customers get less than 3 apps and recomend the 3 you mentioned. if they will only get 2 go with pre-m and spring fert, and early fall with weedcontrol and fert.
