Two or three times each week write a short article on various aspects of lawn management. Include stories of funny or interesting things that have happened while serving your customers. In our area we have people moving from other parts of the country and try to plant their favorite tree or flower and don’t understand why they won’t grow. Give examples of similar trees or flowers that will grow in the area and how to take care of them. Each season of the year, give tips on what people can do to maintain their lawns and ensure less work in the spring. Are you giving away some of your expertise? Yes, however, some people will realize that it might be better to hire you as the expert than try and do it themselves.

Earthworms are so important for your grass and soil. They are natural aerators for your soil.
