    I noted your comments in the "thatching" thread. Sent you a PM, but you're not checking them, and I need help badly. Guess I'll have to expose this great idea publicly.

    I am trying to market a new add-on lawn service called "fussflopping." The scientific explanation: on weeks your lawn does not need mowing, I will have time to walk across the lawn and only charge you 75% of the cost of mowing for this fabulous service. (Science not to be explained to clients!!)

    Could you help me with a more magical name so I can charge more?

    Jim,
    We have to get some sun and heat back. Winter is getting long.

    I am interested in your idea. I'll be watching for more;)

    How about "blade splitting"? We can claim it will double the amount of grass in their lawn. We should charge 115% not 75%. Plus we will have to raise the customers mowing fee do to more grass!:D

    Great improvement. Who makes the best blade splitter?

    Could I just use my powerrake with no knives or flails installed? Or do I need a whole new machine?

    I know exactly what to call it. A monthly contract. In the contract state that if very little to no growth has occured then the lawn will not be mowed. Figure that you will need to skip once or twice during the season when you formulate your bid.
