    If you don't mind me asking how many trucks do you have running to take care of those 900 customers?

    I'm a little behind, my first mailing of 20,000 pieces is finally going out this week. We've sold a few off of Internet searches, maybe 10 or so. This is our first year with fert & squirt though, we've got about 400 weekly lawn mowing customers and have added 40 - 50 of those this year off Internet. I'm looking to add 70 - 100 off the first mailing and then another 150 - 200 off the second mailing of 40,000 pieces that will be going out in a couple of weeks. That's about what we typically get for mowing customers off the mailings but we'll see how it goes.

    Thanks! Same to you...it hasn't been easy! Efficiency is the one who has it figured out! I think he's been able to hit our customer count in just a few years...it has taken us 4 to get to that point
