We used them for fertilizing etc and they in turn would send work our way but we wasn't sub to them. Their prices are pretty low in our area so probably not much margin to work with.

I don't know if I would be a sub for them or not. They are supposedly getting bought out in June or July. I heard something about a big shake up with Service Master. I know they have alot of debt adn we are talking billions. Just something to think about. But then again it may be a good deal.

there fertilizing program is NOT mower friendly. They make it grow grow grow instead of a sustaining green with fair growth. I would look into the work they may have for you though. Tru-Green started mowing huge commercial properties in our area last year.

see thats just the thing they want to take care of everything on the properties. which i thought was kinda weird. they said they dont work outside of a certain radius.

I am not much on tru green.... they offered me a job after I got out of college but I am pretty sure I could make more money and work less being on Welfare (Guess that is how they keep their prices low). Literally... it was nothing, and they wanted you to work long hours.... That is why I went into business for myself.
 
used to work for them and i won't have anything to do with them.

and that's all i'm allowed to say, according to my contract. :p
