As with many business models, the lawn care industry has changed in recent years. Several key areas of change include the advancement of pesticides, an informed clientele and emerging technology. No matter the size of the business, some changes are common throughout the lawn care industry.
New pesticides are becoming available to the lawn care operator (LCO) all the time. The LCO needs to consider how to best utilize the pesticides that are available. More and more, the customer is requesting a specialized type of service. For instance, it is not uncommon for the LCO now to be asked to remove nimblewill from an otherwise almost pure stand of Kentucky bluegrass. Although the selective removal of a grassy weed from a turfgrass stand has always been a challenge, options are available. In this nimblewill case, Tenacity may be considered to eradicate the weed.
