You are dealing with a person that cannot afford to live where he is. Florida Gardener is giving good advice. That is just how things are sometimes. Stay away from customers like that otherwise you will end up with the same problem he has.
Exactly. that also means reel mowing, verticutting each year,etc. The guy that won't pay for irrigation or sod is probably not going to pay for that either. I agree, RUN.
