Biology wins, every time!

In the search for better lawns we have been taught to use the one thing that works very well but has a dark side. I am speaking about synthetics. They are just like steroids and methamphetamines. They work really well which is why people tend to use them but they have...
Gas no more for Honda

Gas no more for Honda

A few years ago I made a prediction. I simply said that within 5-6 years you would no longer be able to buy a gas powered lawn mower. In 2017 the Ego push behind, lithium powered lawn mower went head to head with the top model of the Briggs and Stratton 5hp gas...

You’re Not Happy…

Can I go out on a limb and say that customer service these days sucks? How often have you went somewhere only to get received by someone who really didn’t want to help you? They were rude, unengaged, dismissive or maybe even rude? This now seems to be the norm...

Winners start now!

Winners start now!

Every year we go through the same roller coaster. We witness our customers try to overcome great stress in the spring, play catchup with resources to try to mitigate this stress, discover that what has been tried was unsuccessful and repair and the ensuing repair and...
Soil Tests, What Good Are They?

Soil Tests, What Good Are They?

If you want to spare yourself a ton of grief read on. A few years ago we had a catastrophe happen with one of our customers.  Almost everything that could go wrong  a lawn did. It wasn’t necessarily anything that we were doing, it was more about what we were not...

Don’t go there just yet!

Don’t go there just yet!

In 1983 the band Def Leppard released their album Pyromania. The First track on the LP (you know vinyl) was Rock Rock (Till you drop). This music typified what I was listening to in the 80’s. This has absolutely nothing to do with a landscape but I can segway...

Soil Hydration

Soil Hydration

One of the biggest challenges we face here on the Front Range is the routine failure to water during the winter. The cold weather throws people off into thinking that the landscapes don’t need water during the periods of the year when things are not growing but...
