Custom Fertilizer Program for Homeowners

Instead of your local Landscaping Company or even the national lawn care mogul ChemLawn or TrueGreen who do not conduct soil testing and just offer a "lawn assesment", i.e. a walk around your yard...Have a Golf Course Superintendent provide the same level of care to your lawn as he does his golf course! That starts with soil testing and ends with precise application of fertilizer products chosen specifically for your lawn.
Would you take advantage of this service if it were available in your area? A company, run by a local Golf Course Superintendent, that offered to conduct a soil test of your lawn and formulate a custom fertilizer program (like a Scott's 4-Step program) based on the soil test results for $75.00. The products he would choose from are the same high quality organic and synthetic products used on championship golf courses and not available at your local Home Depot/Lowe's or Garden center. You would purchase the fertilizer from him and apply it yourself following his instructions or hire him to apply it for you. Although prices vary from one product to the other, they would be roughly the same price you would pay for the fertilizer available at your local Home Depot/Lowe's or Garden center but of superior quality. Would you take advantage of this service if it were available in your area?
Yes
No
If the same company offered a season long lawn care program for $500-$600 (depending on organic vs. synthetic) that included soil testing, application of a 4-6 step program of fertilizer based on soil analysis and free service calls for the season. Would you take advantage of this service if it were available in your area?
