Maybe but I don't think it will be in my area, I have explored this part of the industry and I believe I will leave it to others.

I know of only two people around here that have one installed, and I only know of one local company that does them. But they do a very poor job, I have seen some of their work.

What type of demographic would the ideal customer of this product fall into?

I mean are they all doctors and lawyers or do middle class property owners purchase these things as well?

I have noticed that it is usually well to do business owners. Such as owners of engineering, manufactoring, construction, etc. I would say that they mean income is around $150,000+

What kind of profit do you think you could make on such an installation?

I think that you could make a killing not only on the green installation, but possible landscape installation around the green area.

You know that is a very good point. It has the potential to really create a lot of upsells.
