has been leaving those brown stripes due to the wetness in the ground in the low lying areas...

I made an important client furious because i left them due to the wetness of the lawn...i finally made him understand...now today the lawn looked great, but still in some areas has those muddy tracks...hopefully he will understand this time...

anyone else been leaving them? (poop jokes are ok) :dancing:

What brown tracks? It sounds like fungus.... how long have you been in lawn care?

No it is mud from where the weight of the mower presses down on the ground and the ground is wet.

Happens to me when its wet.

It's the customer's fault for having poor drainage. If that line doesn't work, blame it on Obama! :laugh:

I guess my experience in mowing swamps is somewhat limited....

Yeah, it's happening to me too...I just tell the homeowner what it is and to turn off the irrigation when we're getting drenched every 3 days or so.....It's something we just have to deal with...I guess it's better than a drought.

Yeah, my church lawn is the worst to do that. I hate to cut when it's that wet, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. The mower likes to sling muddy water all over itself in those conditions.

It also can be fungus. If you guys are ever mowing and get that black nasty mud on your tires, try to wash your tires off immediately after mowing that yard. If you don't that mud on your tire can start a fungus called the "Black Patch" on the future lawns that you mow that day.

First time I ever heard of that! Man its so wet over here on the western side of the bay, I'm growing webs on my feet. Since about May 25, I don't think we have gotten 2 days clear, without some rain! Got rained out on Thursday , mowing a field that was so wet, water was standing right at about the 5 inch cutting height.:dizzy:

It is just muddy tracks from the mower. They go away quickly. No big deal. The customer needs to hear and learn that there is no way to predict that it will happen.

Sometimes I blast the tracks with the blower. It will help stand the grass back up. But you can still see it.
