lawn fertilizationIt happens quite often, I’ll be in a hardware store or one of the Big Box home improvement stores looking for a tool or whatnot and someone will spy the Lawn Dawg logo on my shirt. They’ll say, “Hey, can you tell me what the best fertilizer for my lawn is?” That’s fine, I like to teach people about caring for their lawns even if they’re not customers.
