Anyway someone evidently bushhogged it or mowed it ,,about 3 weeks ago. He calls & leaves a message to call him about the back yard again. Just erased that message. I hate giving prices over & over again. Especially to folks who will not keep their yard or home in shape. I can understand not being able to afford some services...but quit being so lazy & cut your own grass. I'd be ashamed if I let my lawn look like a pasture.
That would be a case where I'd rent my father's Billy Goat brushcutter and make some quick $$$ and then come back and double my money on the JD to give it a somewhat decent finish.
