tempted to try the turf savers. they don't grip the grass as much, so shouldnt rip as much. and im told on here they don't put "groves" in the yard as some have thought. shrugs.

i think you guys are just running your line trimmers too fast.
In my case it was more like a big pile of diarrhea, not hardened

I have a lot of turnarounds on slopes so they probably wouldn't work for me

If you complain that there are "ruts" (track marks) when I mow after a rain, I will skip you when it is wet... If you then complain that your grass is too tall after 2 straight weeks of rain, I will drop you like a sack of rocks.

Just because you don't care if you or your kids step in your dog's crap doesn't mean I am fine with working all day with it stuck in my boots.

It grosses me out when you bring me a drink, and the cup is all stained and nasty.

Wipe your boot off on their lawn and move on?

So if there was an article like that, what are the top 10 things you would want clients to know about your job, that you wouldn't personally go up and tell them?
This list just in for 2014!!

10 things lawn services won't tell you
The grass may be greener, but at what price?

Usual consumer grade pablum to make homeowners think they have the upperhand on knowing what's best for the lawn. My favorite is cutting warm season grasses at 2". I make lots off resodding SA that gets cut at 2". I bet this article was sponsored by HD and Lowes.
