I'm getting so far behind with all this rain. My lawns are growing like crazy w/ the spring growth & all this rain, but a good portion of those lawns I simply cannot cut the 6" high grass because they are way to wet to get any equipment on. I know customers are getting upset with their grass being so long but there is nothing I can do about it. I've only had a few calls asking me to get there asap & a couple pissed off wondering where I am. I simply have to tell them I walked their property & it was way to wet. I would either get stuck, make ruts or tear up the turf. Eventually they understand & realize attempting to mow would cause worse problems then mowing foot high grass will. Fortunately next week is supposed to be mostly rain free & warm. Unfortunately it will take forever to mow these lawns when I do manage to get to them. Leaving the customers down on the list even more upset & taking even longer to get on a normal schedule. Landscaping jobs are another story. Altho I have managed to get some smaller easier jobs done, the rest are falling behind. As it's quite hard to final grade topsoil that is now mud. Till up beds. Install shrubs in the backyard that is now a lake. Lay sod on top of water. Or seed in standing water. Those jobs can be put off a bit as the lawns MUST be done asap. I can't believe some of guys I've seen out mowing making ruts, getting stuck, etc... just not my style... Anyone else in a similar boat? over 4" of rain this month most came down this week.
