I am not sure if this has been discussed. Have you seen this new publication yet?

There seems to be a couple of new lawn care operator magazines out this year.

Even though they said it starts in January, I swear I received their first issue about 3-4 weeks ago.

How did it compare to other green industry publications?

Well, I know that I received a new one, because the editor was talking about how it was the first issue and everything. Unless it was another new magazine.

I thought that I it was not bad. You could tell that they were still wet behind the ears. But other than that, seemed pretty good.
