hey all. got one more for you all. yesterday i did a cleanup on one of my small properties and saw a guy about my age doing a not cleanup but almost like a lawn renovation on a fairly healthy lawn, the kid went and dethatched and aerated the lawn. i went back after him to tell the woman that she had been ripped off. i did this because it was my friend's account. i went and looked and they did a 10M sq ft lawn with a gandy aerator pulled by a quad. the lawn was torn apart. you could see the tire tracks from the machine and the lawn had been raped by both that and the thatching machine. they did not go both ways with the aerator from what it looked like. now that bothered me. however here is my dilema- i have to aerate about 6 acres of turf. nice open areas that are fine for such a large rig. the biggest aerator i can rent though is about 28-30 inches wide. now to do 6 acres with criss crossing would take 1 guy with the machine about 3 days i would say. probably more. i am gonna charge T&M. however if i could get this kid to go there and do it with his machine i would be able to free up my guy and get the job done real fast. more trouble- these people want all employees to be covered by w/c - i dont think this kid has w/c. even more trouble- i looked at the cores that the machine made and they were pretty messy. what do i do? i wanna get this over and done with but i want it to look nice.
