I have learned a lot so far by your answers to my questions and by reading alot of past threads. I would like to thank all of you. Now to the reason for this post. I picked up a good book the other day and I just wanted to recomend it. I know there are other people, who like me are taking the steps to enter this business. Well, so far this book has giving me a lot of usefull information. It is Scotts Lawns, Your Guide To A Beautiful Yard. I knew nothing before this book and now I have a reference to go by. I think any time some body comes on LS and ask for start up information. Somebody should include something like this. What good is cutting the grass if we don't know how high, how offten or what's killing it. Thanks again for all the help I've received and all your advice in the future.
