I have a life Mr. Stone and so does everyone else here. However, one of our biggest and &quot;best&quot; suppliers is slowly cutting our throats!<br>Think about it!<br>I'm not trying to be a smart @%$ or anything, but does this not bother anyone else here? If not, Why? Please explain.<br>Thanks.

what pesticide forum are you referring to? Unless I see what you are referring to I'll have to agree with Larry.

In response to the fact that home depot now sells lesco mowers:<p>I have the september issue of landscape mgmt. sitting in front of me, and on the back cover is a lesco add. <p>The slogan goes <p>&quot;A good business relationship begins with quality products&quot;<p>then there is a picture of a lesco salesman standing at his desk and a contractor on the other side, and they are both reading a brochure together.<p>underneath that it says;<br>&quot;But a GREAT business relationship includes outstanding service, convenience and value!&quot;<p>I guess for the next add they'll run, they'll use the same sayings, but instead the picture will be this.<p>A picture of a 45 year old man, dressed in jean shorts, a hawaiian shirt, black socks pulled all the way up, with black penny loafers, holding a bent mower blade, waiting in a line of about 30 people trying to get to the service counter at home depot with a 17 year old high schooler behind the counter in a orange apron who has a dumb look on his face. <p>I could really care less what lesco does, but the whole thing is funny to me.<p><br>

Well it does bother me a bit. As lawn care providers we are usally are called on because of the quality of chemicals we use.And usally able to get better chem's then most people. I believe if Lesco sells it's products at retail stores it takes something away from us. If i was a home owner and had hired a company to fert and they were putting down Scott's turf builder I would feel ripped off. Why would I be paying these guy's for something I can run to the hardware store and get myself.<br>People pay us for the higher quality.<br>That's my 2 cents
