This Week’s Hot Threads September 4, 2018








From feedback on fair pricing to reapplication of weed killers, here are some questions from the landscape professionals on LawnSite forums this past week.

BUSINESS OPERATIONS

  • A LawnSite member from New Jersey is wondering why many landscape professionals (including himself) don’t charge more for their services when they are worth more. Do you think your fees reflect your talent, professionalism and skills? Why or why not? Share your thoughts…
  • A landscape professional from Charlotte, NC is dealing with many “small requests” from clients that are outside of the scope of what a lawn care crew normally does on a weekly basis. How do you weigh the importance of keeping clients happy with managing time and expectations? Share your thoughts…

PESTICIDE & HERBICIDE APPLICATION

  • A LawnSite member from southwest Idaho is struggling with callbacks to respray lawns two months after the initial application of weed killer. Is this too long after an initial application to warrant a free redo because the first time “didn’t work?” Is his boss being spineless by offering clients a free treatment in these cases?  Share your thoughts…

BIDDING , ESTIMATING AND PRICING

  • A LawnSite member from Tyler, TX wonders how other landscape pros are collecting from their commercial accounts. He’s in the process of switching his residential clients over to card on file, but hasn’t started that process for his commercial clients and would like to know if others prefer that method over sending out invoices. Share your thoughts…

BRANDT Releases Turf Product Finder App

BRANDT has released a second product finder mobile app, this time for the turf marketplace. Available for iOS and Android devices, the BRANDT Turf Product Finder app gives users the ability to search and mine more than 200 BRANDT, GRIGG and BRANDT iHammer US turf products.

The BRANDT Turf Product Finder follows last year’s successful release of the BRANDT Ag Product Finder.

Each product will feature a label, safety data sheet and brochure that can easily be shared from inside the app, using the device’s native share function. Users will also be able to save documents for quick retrieval and offline viewing by adding them to their “library.” There are more than 200 products in the BRANDT, GRIGG and BRANDT iHammer portfolio.

turf app

“After seeing the success from our first product finder app for our agriculture products, we wanted to provide a similar tool for turf retailers and golf course superintendents,” said Karl Barnhart, BRANDT Chief Marketing Officer. “Golf course supers are now able to access application rates and mixing information from their phones or tablets, rather than having to be at a computer or a printed label.”

The BRANDT Turf Product Finder app includes a smart search feature as well as an easy-to-use filtering system based on product category, type and formulation. Users will also be able to find contact information for local BRANDT sales reps to gain more information about products, pricing and purchasing.

The BRANDT Product Finder app can be downloaded, free, for iOS and Android.
