  4. How long ago did you pass the state pesticide license exam?

    Why don't you develop a plan, and then we can comment on it??

    Do a soil test. That will help you out a lot with your program. The people at your school in the turf department will be more than happy to help you improve your lawn. They are there to help you afterall. That's what you are paying for isn't it?

  8. So exactly what does your landscaping co do?

    How about local extension agent.

    Read a couple of books. These are inexpensive and provide basic info:
    Better lawns Step by Step by joe provey & kris robinson
    creative homeowner press

    Scotts lawns by Nick Christians
    meredith books

    Orthro's Lawns
    meredith books

    Lawn Care for Dummies
    IDG books

    Read and understand these, then go purchase some turfgrass books!

    Now go develop a plan!!! You will gain more if it's a learning process!

    Good luck and happy reading
