Muhtar, thank you for all your help over the years. I can’t believe it’s been 10 already. You’re an honest, knowledgeable, reliable person and I would highly recommend you and your company to any one. In fact, I often recommend you to family and friends and let them know how hard-working you are and that the results speak for themselves. Thank you especially for your recent help with the over seeding and top-dressing. I look forward to a much richer lawn this year and next. Thanks also for stopping by to check on it and call me to let me know I needed to water it more. Your dedication to your work and your customers is highly commendable. Thanks!
