Hi all, HNY to you. My first job back this week after being away in the sun for a couple of weeks was a Laurel hedge hard prune for an occasional client. The clients aren't actually living in the property atm, but when I arrived on Tuesday the first thing I noticed was a granular lawn treatment had just been applied. Hmm.... why would anyone put this down in January? I questioned the client when I spoke to them about why had they done this.
Greenthumb of course. This was applied on Monday, the daytime temperture did not get above 2c for two days, there is no rain forecast until at least the weekend, so possibly 5-6 days at least.
What sort of person applies granular treatment on the coldest days/ month of the year, with no rain forecast, how do they get away with charging for this? I know we all have a living to make but this at best is a waste of money, at worst will burn the lawn.
