    We will be going by all of them this week starting Tuesday. Probably will on do half. We did not do anything last week other than the 2 with the watering systems. :cry:

    We have been on an every 2 -- 3 week schedule here in Central Pa. since the first week of July. Even the hacks are mowing every (2) weeks or longer due to the driest conditions here in a decade. The overseeding business should be brisk in a month or so however......

    One positive is that the competition is thinning fast. All of the legit companies seem to be fine, but the others, who will remain nameless, are throwing in the towel. Good riddance IMO......
