Landscapers cash-in on industry know-how

Every landscaper and professional gardener uses trade secrets and helpful hints to finish jobs faster and better. Now sharing those tips could fetch them more than just a pat on the back for a job well done.

WD-40 Co. is asking professionals to share their tricks of the trade for possible inclusion on the WD-40 Job Site, an online resource for homeowners and do-it-yourselfers. Professionals whose suggestions are selected for the job site will receive a WD-40 tool belt, not to mention recognition for their know-how.

“Trade professionals have long used WD-40 on the job, and we know they’re the real experts when it comes to maintenance and repair,” said Rob Fleisher, director of marketing for WD-40 Co. “The Job Site will share that knowledge with homeowners in a handy online resource.”

Whether it is a hint on replacing a broken sprinkler head or a tip on sharpening lawnmower blades, WD-40 Co. wants to share these pearls of wisdom. These tips are not found in any trade manual or instruction book; they are hints and shortcuts that make a job easier, faster and better.

The WD-40 Job Site, which launches is May 2003, will feature at least 100 tips from professionals in several industries, along with a variety of suggestions from the Carey Brothers, home improvement gurus and hosts of the syndicated radio program “on the House.”
