any one do any lawns today? mine dont really need to be mowed bad but i dont want to skip them.

I have a feeling its going to be a crazy fall, the leaves will fall late. A lot are still 100% green.

I feel the opposite is true, especially with the rain and cold weather now. I think we are at the same point with leaves now as we were at the end of october last year. I usually have close to a week between cutting and cleaups, i think Ill be going straight into it this year

Yeah.. its gonna be packed..Cant make it either.

i was just looking at those liquid storage tanks. (not even posed for sale) That stuff looks beat to death...personally. And the sight of all those plows Sitting/ rusting in those puddles is just unfortunate! Especially knowing how big the inside is. not too hard to elevate them.

Karma finally caught up with him, and mommy won't bail him out this time as she has done several times in the past. Doesn't break my heart. He stiffed us on several irrigation installs a few years back. Good riddance.

I will admit his designs are great. Very formal and extensive. His ethics and morals are quite another story.
