Yeah, I'm dreading the one I'm going to cut tomorrow. They get treated and that lawn needs cut twice a week during the growing season. Should be interesting.

The rest are a mixed bag. One I cut today wasn't bad at all. Another I looked at today for tomorrow is just high weeds - grass is "normal" height. Weeds are CRAZY this year.

Yesterday and today were some of the most grueling days ever in terms of mowing. I can only blame myself for not starting last week. Each yard I encounterd had growth that was worse than the previous one. It took forever too edge and trim. That was after double cutting and bagging the yards. I seen many yards in higher end neighborhoods not touched yet, along with a couple common areas.

Yup. Same here.

If you didn't see it in my other thread, here's the second job I used my new Ferris on...









The ones I cut today were all small jobs near the city, so it was 21" push - mulch high, lower, and bag.

Picked up 2 more today. the one was pretty high but it's a nice small shaler yard. ***** getting out but o well. He said the best thing i have ever heard when i asked him if he always bagged, he said "well i would like you to come pretty often so it doesn't need bagged." On the other hand i had another customer argue my pricing but thats the way it goes i guess.
