One lawn I do the first time I was there the wife watched my every move from the window and paced the lawn as I weed whacked. She has a case of OCD to the extreme and I passed. I try to not be there when they are for the ones who want extra.

Yep.....turning my calendar into a to-do list and rescheduling everything in order of importance.
I'm tired off feeling like I'm running behind constantly, shuffling jobs mid day to keep someone happy. Sorry....end of rant.

Is everyone else still slammed stupid busy?

I give up. Nothing like watching hydroseed and topsoil run down the drain. Sod floating away, mulch washed out, let alone behind on cutting.

I was 7 weeks out on landscape jobs now I'm 9 weeks out

Speaking of sod floating I did a lawn today where one section was so water logged the root zone was lifted from the soil. When you walked on it, it was like a water bed. It was freaky.

Broken sprinkler lines underground can be entertaining when you don't have to troubleshoot it. The bulge in the lawn that appears when the sprinkler goes on and disappears shortly after like watching a volcano that is going to erupt. Its a bummer when it swallows a mower though.

These crazy storms are killing me. Getting further and further behind. I will work in the crappiest of crap weather but refuse to work in lightning. Had to skip 10 customers this week because I just ran out of time in the week
