Hi Kris,

I bet that area is a real fun place to live.

With all your experience built up over the years, what areas are you looking to improve upon?

Default looking to improve

hey Steve, the main areas I would like to improve on & do a lot more of is fertalizing, & landscaping, the aerating & de-thatching have been picking up more every year as I teach my customers the benefits of what It does for the lawn, but there isnt a real big calling for new landscaping, & hardly any customers of mine have any irrigation systems installed so I'm been kicking that arround a little as well. Also I do a couple of cemeteries for neighboring townships & had a few grave sites I've done (colored rocks,borders etc) & will be advertizing for that this spring....looking forward to doing more!

When you are out mowing your customers lawns, could you maybe draw up some landscape ideas or present them with some ideas on how they could improve the landscape in their yard?

We have seen many members here who were able to do that and turn those ideas into sales.
