Thanks for the advice. I have tried slicing, as per your suggestion as well as spot spraying with Roundup using a sawn off flower pot to contain the weedkiller to the weed alone as well as the "Glove of death" i.e a Roundup…"
"Hello Richard - me again
There's an article in Local Government News about a chemical from Syngenta Crop Protection UK Ltd. It's called "Rescue" and can apparently remove coarse ryegrasses from bowling greens. Phone number is…"
Large coarse weed grasses tend to have large coarse roots. A greenkeeper once told me that to get rid of poa annua in fine grasses, he slices through the plant and the roots in several directions. This fatally injures the plant and it…"
I have been working on a nice lawn since last Autumn which is gradually improving but does seem to suffer from regular infestation of large, coarse weed grasses. I have aerated twice in the last 6 months, fed correctly, overseeded in the Autumn and in short, done everything by the book. I am due to scarify and oversow very soon so my question is what advice does anyone have to get rid of these weed grasses. There are too many to hit with Roundup or similar so I was wondering if any particular…See More

Agree with Helen that you probably don't have a great case. Unfortunately, I suspect you won't be too keen on committing to give these people a further chunk of your hard earned money, either! You don't say what kind of publication this is, but a publication delay of 3 months probably isn't enough to claim a fundamental breach of contract (i.e. failure to publish).

Forgot to mention, you will need to have access 97 loaded as a minimum although we can sort out run times if that is not ok.
Regarding accounts, all I would do is run the system and then enter a batch figure for the month, so much simpler and we have complete control over invoicing etc whereas packages tend to tie you itno what they want you to do.
Which Franchiser are you with Richard?
For Landscape Juice members I have knocked 20% off what I normally charge.
Generally it would be around £1,000 which I would invoice over 6 to 12 months.
The scheduling is based around 4 standard treatments per year, you can run notification letters re reminders of treatments and these can be e mailed reducing costs. Records of all past treatments are shown on the job sheet allowing easy referral for lawn condition etc.
The system is integrated to allow for easy invoicing, payments by cash/chq/dd/so etc
Reminder letters automatically generated and again sent by e mail if required.
Nice little system if I say it myself.
What I can do is download a trial system to you and I use a log in system so that I can come on line and sort any issues out.
Currently I supply several Lawn Doctor Fanchisee's with my system, Lawn Master run their whole system on a similar suite.
