    I am looking to add another service. I am looking into spraying rock landscapes for the types of homes you find at the shore. What do you guys spray and how many times a year. I am guessing around end of march a preemergent and then a post emergent a few months later. Any information would be helpful.

    Perhaps you should have a rock-cleaning service. Remove rocks--wash and dry them. Treat with pre-emergent, put down new landscape fabric, replace rocks. Maybe you could even apply a shiny wax to the rocks--and charge big bucks extra.

    Ha, if this is something that i can do and make money at it, it would be a great idea! Not sure time wise it would be feasible though.

    I understand Jc1's private message to see if I was a competitor in his back yard that he was giving his trade secrets too and respect it. I am only researching this and seeing if this something we can do and be good at it. Our lawn fert program is growing at a pretty good rate so why not try and expand.
