You bet! Not sure if you have seen this Lesco product. Apparently, it just came out.

That’s a good sign. The big guns are jumping on the carbon bandwagon and they appear to have test results. The results are consistent with what Matt has been saying. Matt @thegrassfactor , you better get ready to increase production :D :thumbup:

Interesting -

Curious how this compares price-wise - ingredient-wise, it looks like a direct competitor to RGS.

Is that the homeowner or business price?

FYI. It's only 2 Oz per gallon, per 1k sq', so it may be a challenger, but I have not done the math yet.

RGS is 3oz/1k - but I tend to use 6oz/1k.

4 gal of RGS is $95 shipped I believe.

Homeowner price and it's (2) oz per 1,000 sq. ft. for the first application followed by (1) oz per 1,000 sq. ft. per month or every time fertilizer is applied
I have 10K square feet of lawn so:
RGS at 3oz per K = 4.3 applications for $88 (free shipping) or $20+ an application
Lesco at 2 oz per K, then 1 oz afterward = 11.8 applications for $134 (local pickup)or $11+ an application

I think I did that correctly. I guess the proof is in the results!

That mean the business cost should be significantly less. SiteOne always nails the homeowner in pricing.

My math is a little different. Maybe I'm wrong?



5 gallons RGS = 640oz ($5 off coupon - cousineddie)

https://thelawncarenut.com/collections/ ... s-5-gallon

10k sq/ft lawn @ 3oz per application = 30oz RGS

At 30oz of RGS per app - you get 21.33 applications in 640oz (5 gallons), or 21 applications.

$100 divided by 21 applications $4.76/application.


RGS is 2.31x cheaper then Lesco's product @ Homeowner pricing.
