Amazon and True Green Lawn care. I do not believe Hills strategy would benefit Amazon due to Jeff Bezos willingness to lose money in the short term in order to maximize profits down the road. With True Green, Hills development Framework, utilizing a superior product, valuing your customers and testing those techniques on a small sampling could allow for both a positive and a negative. While the lawn care business is only a 6-8 month a year revenue in most places due to winter, this frees up the company to further research and develop processes and control their overhead on a more linear path.

Amazon has a competitive advantage in both price point and customer service. I have not found any other company that has the “no arguments” policy that Amazon has. I have had a few issues with either late shipments or shipments not showing up and both times I received an apology, a full refund, and the product sent again at no cost to me. With True Green, in the event of crabgrass or excess dead spots, the company will come back out at no cost and take time to explain why the issues are occurring and how they will resolve the issue.
