    That's good. Our best day this week was 31 program sales.

    I got one of your postcards at my house this week. Looks good. Postcard says 4 apps a year on it. I go to your website and it lists 5. Which is it? My wife was going to hire you unril she saw that discrepency....

    Good deal!
    Then u will b getting two more very soon!
    ;)

    We recommend 4 applications for most home lawns.
    Keep in mind we do larger lawns and people don't want or need more then 4.

    If u look at our summer app u will see two ** beside grub control. Then go to the bottom and you will see its recommended but not part if program.

    That is a 5th app that we recommnend on lawns that are irrigated or have had grubs in the past!

    We have lawns we do 6 or 7 apps on of a customer wants a customized program with insect control etc.

    One size doesn't fit all!

    Watch the video on the fert page too and u can learn more.

    :)

    What? surely you jest. As if anyone actually applies anytning other than the standard concoctions for each round. It sounds good selling it that way but reality says otherwise....

    We customize all the time.

    That's why we shine!

    For instance we don't apply a high N product on shaded lawns. Our special instructions says to apply starter on lawns with shade so we get root development rather then upper growth.

    That's just 1 example.

    You guys that say you sell 30-50 newbies a day...

    How can you possibly get to that many homes and visit with people in one day? Am confused?
    Or are you just signing up blind over the phone?
