Perplexed by Pond Algae?
Get ahead of algae blooms with aeration + beneficial bacteria

By now algae is in full swing in your customers' ponds.   


Water temperatures warm and the spring winds will start to calm, creating the perfect environment for major algae blooms and green ponds.  Fight back this year with the natural approach of  Aeration and Macro-Zyme bacteria.  Both are effective tools for a healthy, well managed pond and work better together.


Aeration provides the needed oxygen for the natural breakdown of organics and nutrients in ponds.  It also provides excellent water movement to prevent the stagnant areas surface plants thrive in.  Macro-Zyme will rapidly increase the decomposition of those organics and help rid ponds of the nutrients algae and aquatic plants use to grow.  Used together, you can naturally and successfully keep ponds cleaner, healthier, and looking their best this summer and beyond. 

Contact us today to learn how  Kasco products will save you time, money and headaches associated with a poorly managed pond. 

Avoid the Mid-Year Sales Slump
Ideas to capture customers all season long

yawn By the time August rolls around, the busy season is over for some companies. Many consumers have completed their spring "to do" lists and have turned their thoughts to other types of summertime activities.


While you might be tempted to take a breather after a couple of busy months, now's the time to move your marketing into overdrive.   Here are a few ideas of ways to connect with potential customers: 


Engaging events: Whether it is pancake breakfasts, BBQ cookouts or golf outings, there's no better way to reconnect with your customers than a face-to-face event.   Have a little fun and introduce your best customers (and their employees or friends) to your latest new services.  


Give them a taste: Find ways for customers to experience what you offer when they can use it most.   For example, identify current customers who would benefit from a demonstration installation of landscape lighting.  


Clever promotions: Customers who are on-the-fence need strong incentives. Be aggressive and attention-getting with your summer promotions.  Offer insider deals to your e-newsletter subscribers or Facebook fans.  


Leverage trends:   Smart irrigation and water conservation are a hot topic.  Introduce intelligent new irrigation products and practices.  Customers' water bills are growing, help them save green by being green.
