Another Use For Yard Sticks From Lawn Care Professionals

Finally… I thought of a creative use for all those little yard post signs left behind by lawn care companies!

Last week, the lawn care guy came by and sprayed our lawn. (A company called Second Nature does this 4 times a year for us. We love it because we no longer have any weeds!)

After he left, I went out to retrieve the little “we sprayed your lawn today” sign that he always leaves in the front yard.

When, all of a sudden, I got a brainstorm:

These would make great yard sale signs!

They’re little, so you wouldn’t want to use them as directional signs (unless you just put one big ‘ol arrow on 2 or 3 of them).

They work best as price signs placed next to large items in the yard or groups of items that are similar.

Of course, I didn’t think of this creative use for lawn care signs & posts prior to my last garage sale, but now I’m glad I’ve been saving them for years because I’ll definitely be putting them to use at my next yard sale.

Can you think of any other creative uses for these nifty little things?…

    You should not run out and “retrieve” the lawn posting sign as soon as the technician leaves.  It should be left in place for up to 24 hours after the treatment.  They are not there for viewing pleasure, but rather to inform the public that chemicals have been used, and that safety is required in that area.
