Dear Valued Landscape Professional,
As you know we have always offered a 25% discount off our retail price on most products to approved Landscape Professionals. This is done, of course, to encourage you to do business with us, as well as to provide you with an opportunity to get some additional markup on the products you install. Despite our best efforts to limit this discount to legitimate Landscape Professionals, a review of our approved Landscape Professionals shows that a number of unqualified businesses (and even some homeowners) have been able to get approved for the discount. This is most evident for example when you see one $200 purchase each spring. Clearly that is not the buying pattern of someone who is making their living as a Landscape Professional. In order to protect your interest and ours we are making a policy change that our Landscape Professionals discount will be 10% off of your first $500 in purchases with us. After that your full 25% discount will kick in. The $500 threshold is based on previous year’s purchases so if you exceeded that amount last year you will still receive the full 25% discount. Anyone below that amount will need to hit $500 in current year purchases with us before the full 25% discount kicks in.
Please let me know personally if you have any questions or if I can help you in any way. Thank you so much for your past business and I hope you have a successful spring.
