This Week on YouTube: March 31, 2018

Another week has gone by and we have another roundup of the best lawn care videos! This week is all about useful tips and services that will help you on the job: weed identification, checking soil temperature, using lawn care management software and knowing how to manage your employees!

It's Springtime. Know Your Weeds!

When it comes to identifying and treating weeds, Jason Creole of Lawn Care Life is the man for the job. With spring literally around the corner, weeds will start growing even before the grass emerges which is why it's important to identify them properly. Dallas Grass, Wild Garlic and Star of Bethlehem are just a few types in the long list of weeds you are likely to encounter.

Checking Soil Temperature

Lawn care professionals tend to have differing views on this subject, but lawn care pro Ryan Knorr makes the case for doing this as the weather gets warmer. As grass begins to emerge, knowing your soil temperature can help you decide what to use and what not to use on your lawn, all the way from types of plants to fertilizers.

Growing Your Business with Yardbooks

UAG member Brian Fullerton of Brian's Lawn Maintenance explains the ins and outs of the lawn care management system, starting from receiving an order sheet from clients to using the system to upsell services to former clients. Brian goes on to take us through a call that he makes to clients to confirm their bookings.

Scalping Bermuda Grass in Spring

If you live in an area that has Bermuda Grass, it is good to know a few things before taking on the job. Knowing the optimum height of this perennial green is key, so is the fact that it is a very dense grass requiring a planned method of collection. How To With Doc shares a few interesting tips.

The Tough Decisions - Firing Employees

Lawn care expert Pete from GCI Turf Services has some profound words to say when it comes to this very difficult moment that many landscapers are likely to come across in their careers. Regardless of your relationship with your employees, you have to know the best way to make these decisions as you grow your business.
