    its a gimick...whats the big deal...I think we've all given away stuff or lowered a cost to get a job....not sure on the size of the lawn, but in FL, my average lot was 10-14K. one one bag of fert... or basically around 80 bucks in product cost. and maybe 2 hours of labor

    If I gave away 80 bucks in products for each property, but I was able to land the yearly maintenance to the tune of 120-140 bucks for 12 months......I'd do it...its a 5% hit on the bottom line...

    Id much rather spend 80 bucks on a known client, than toss the money away in flyers or yellow page ads....

    I used to tell all of my clients that I'd spray the crack weeds in driveways for free...
