    Here is an account that I picked up from a real estate company. I mowed it about three weeks ago for the first time this year.

    This time they asked me to mow down all the overgrown flowers on the sides of the driveway.

    Here are the before pics

    And here are the after. Keep in mind that I tried to get them to let me clean out all the beds around the house and remulch everything, but they didn't want to let go of that much money. So all the beds around the house are still overgrown.

    Not really. I started mowing at 7 AM with a lot of dew. We have also received several inches of rain over the last week or two, so I was anxious to see how it would do.

    I mowed the part in front of the house twice at 3.5". Everything else was once at 4".

    I had to go slower in the lower areas and the back yard where there was more growth. It was 8-12" tall in some areas.

    The Grasshopper really exceeded my expectations as I didn't know what to expect with that much growth in the wet conditions.
