No you are good. True Green is still doing them. If the ground is frozen I wouldn't. Grass is going dormant now, I would worry more about the plugs sitting on the turf for the next six months(aesthetics) than doing damage to the grass.

It will just look like frozen dog crap.

Half done with first round of cleanups. Weathers been great employees are in a good mood. This is how it should be instead of 40 and drizzle doing cleanups.


One thing I can't believe is all the late sprinkler blowouts. 26 calls yesterday seriously people are procrastinators

Going to prob finish up first round of clean ups and last cuttings this week then up north for some deer hunting and let the rest of the leafs fall down here and then finish up the season the end of the month.

Speaking of employees being in a good mood, the two guys with me have never been with a company that used a leaf loaded, im shocked at the smiles on there face everytime they start it up....
