If you are from the Tulsa area, stop by the Tulsa Home and Garden Show this weekend and say hello to us. I have lost count of the number of home shows I’ve been a part of in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Bartlesville, Claremore, and NW Arkansas to name a few….. well over 100 over the years. It’s a great way for homeowners to visit various businesses and get ideas for caring for and improving your home and landscape. It’s a great way to personally meet folks from these businesses in a friendly environment without any sales pressure. And one can sure tell a lot about a business just by visiting some with the people who own and work at it.
We enjoy meeting our many customers and visiting with them. It seems that with over 14,000 customers now at LawnAmerica, we visit with more existing customers than prospective ones, and that’s great! If you are an existing customer, stop by and we’ll give you a Thank You card with a $40 Savings Coupon good for any new Optional or Enhancement Service, such as our Buzz Off Mosquito Control Program, aeration, turf disease control, tree & shrub care, and other valuable services. We’ll also be breaking in our new Big Jake, the big 9′ LawnAmerica dude who roams around places like home shows, parades, parties, etc. Stop by and have your picture made with him, and share that on Facebook for us. We’d appreciate it.
Spring has definitely arrived early this year, so we’ve been working hard to get our customer’s Round 1 pre-emergent applied, which we’ve just about finished with now. Don’t worry though, as even though it has been warm, crabgrass is not quite up yet, but will be very soon. We will be switching from our normal pre-emergent, Barricade, to another good one named Dimension very soon. Dimension will not only stop seeds from germinating, but will also control small crabgrass already germinated in the one and two seed leaf stage.
