We know it takes hard work, long hours and a lot of effort to make it in the spray industry, so our Customer Highlight Contest is a fun way to recognize customers who exemplify these industry values. Today, we are featuring one of the winners of our most recent Customer Highlight Contest.

1. Briefly describe your business and the type of services you provide:
We are a locally owned and operated lawn and tree spraying company. We have been in the chemical lawn and tree care business for 28 years. We provide insect and disease control to our residential and commercial customers. Our lawn and tree care programs are preventative; we design customized programs to meet the needs of each property.
2. Do you use social media for your business? If so, what channels? (Facebook, Twitter, etc)
While we have been in business for over 28 years, we are very new to social media. About a year ago, we brought on a former employee, Michael Chant, to build our website and establish our social media presence. We can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Yelp and YouTube. We like to focus on a specific audience and our followers are growing every day!
3. What type of equipment do you use most often?
Our lawn care crews use John Bean Sprayers and Turfco Spreaders. We also use Z-Spray Spreaders.
4. When using a sprayer, what are you typically spraying?
For our lawn care customers, we are spraying insecticides and herbicides. Our tree care crews are spraying non-toxic insecticides, dormant oil, fungicides, insecticides and deep root fertilizer. Depending on the time of year, we might be spraying hemlocks, arborvitaes, fruit trees, birches and other ornamentals.
5. What months of the year are the busiest for your business?
March, April, and May are the busiest months for us. During this time, we are applying dormant oil to all hemlocks, arborvitaes, and fruit trees. We also need to have our first lawn care application complete by the end of April.
6. What is one part or component you always keep on hand?
7. What is the biggest way Sprayer Depot helps make your life easier?
What we really like about Sprayer Depot is that that they have everything we need from complete sprayers to replacement parts in one place and they ship right to our door, fast!
8. If you could choose the color of our next "Eat. Spray. Love" t-shirt, what color would it be?
It seems like everyone in our industry has green t-shirts so the right color of gray would really stick out!
