That's pretty cool! Kinda funny, when you mow for a living it feels like a LOT more of the US is covered with turf than it really is.

Interesting...NY (Long Island), CT, NJ and MD) seem to be the highest density. Florida and southern CA big too but considering their size, not so much. Neat map.

At times. I am thinking its more like manicured turf they are trying to illustrate.

A whole new perspective.

I guess the old "don't mind the lowballers, there is plenty of grass for everybody to cut" mentality will need some readjustment, don't you think?

This should become a sticky to show everyone that we are dealing with a limited market, in particular when you consider a high percentage of those lawns owners cannot/will not pay $100-$200 per month for maintenance.

Levittown, Long Island...the origin of the manicured home lawn as we know it.

I figured I would give this tread a bump for those that may have missed it during the summer.
