Ok your grasses are probably like ours....bermuda and St Augustine. When you have a Wright Sentar RH you can adjust the height on the run. So you pull into a lawn and cut it high then lower it to the final height and cross cut it. And yes we cut a lot of hybrid bermuda low with the kit on. And we do a lot of bi-weekly and no we don't charge more than $30.

Well we are right into our major leaf cleanup that started in Oct but really got into final stages with live oak dropping now. A hail storm knocked a few more off.

It was a little damp and that makes it just right for mulching these leaves up. When I finished the media I went out into the street and lowered the mower and made those into dust also. You can see the yard over to the left that is nicely finished. No big blowers needed and nothing to take away from the site on this job.

Those are petals. People up here wouldn't even call us to clean those up. You fellas are lucky.

those small leaves like that suck. they don't mulch up very well since they are so small. the big ones mulch up good.

Those petals can get raked up faster than they can get mulched. Up north they'd get raked or bagged with the grass.

Live oaks will dump in early Spring.
