I made the transition this fall into going green. We started with our turf care I have started using my homemade compost tea as a fertilizer which is working out better than I thought. I am going to try and become a certified irrigation auditor and obtain a watersense certification this winter. Does anyone have any tips for carrying this into the spring season or on running my business more efficiently? Any marketing tips? This is all fairly new to me.

Step 1. Locate tree-huggers.

Step 2. Take their money.




That's all I got.

I would market to people with kids and pets as safe to play on

A lot of it depends on what you want to focus on. If you are going to become a certified irrigation auditor could you also offer irrigation system winterization and blow outs?
