    I was wondering if I could get some feed back on a few questions I had .I have been in the lawn care business for about 3 years now and recently thought about adding more services on. Just wondering how to go about getting started with the fertilization services.

    Likewise I have thought about adding fertilizing to my list of offered services. I am curious though on the profits available. Most of my customers don't want to pay for more mowings. Would I still be able to make a decent profit or am I looking in the wrong direction? I know here in Ohio we are going through a LARGE lack of rain spell. How does that affect the fertilizing?

    Weeble67,

    Where are you located at in OH?

    Feel you pain...we are in a pretty bad drought also, but just got little over an inch last night so it should help.
