My mom sent me this. It looks like something to put on your website with the words "We won't let this happen to you!" I thought of you guys right away. Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=71IZf4ozJnE

Yeah, but then again, I'm the one wasting all this time looking at it! I also found this video of you on your mower. At least I think its you! Just another day at work, huh Steve? Its good to get an inside look at your typical day out on the job, I'm just wondering why you never posted this anywhere. Hmm... Alright, I need to get out and be productive for the rest of the day! I hope this gives you a good laugh.

Scott,

I think you have entirely too much time on your hands. Market and grow. Get enough business and hire employees that you can check on while they make money for you!

I sent out my new referral system to my current customers, hoping they would be more interested in helping me out.

My city is being attacked my weeds, & most lawns now consist of dirt and thatch... I want to attack lawns with spray before they start looking like most of them. But I need guidance & tips.

How many gallons of Natures Lawn spray can cover 2000 sqft? Or do you mix a small amount with water? what's the ratio?

Mixture
Weed control 32oz per gallon water
Nature's Magic 4oz per gallon water
Aerify 1 oz per gallon
Fertilizer 12 oz per gallon water

1 - 2 gallons misture per 1,000 sq ft

Any combination can be mixed together and applied in one spraying.

Steve

Thanks Steve!

Can't wait to advertise this stuff. Hope it sells well!

Does it actually work well?

I'll believe it if you guys say so, too expensive to test it myself.

Not that expensive when you break it down.
Cost per 1,000 sq ft:
Natures Magic - $1.45
Aeriify - $0.88
Fertilizer - $4.34
Weed - $8.88

For Nature's Magic, Aerify, and Fertilizer I get $34.00 per 1,000 sq ft. Material cost is $6.67.
