    so this church next to our house has brickman mowing it, they destroyed this poor little lawn, i saw them last week, mowing on like 2, lol in a cloud of dust just burning the lawn out, they had to cut it like 3 times to try and disperse the grass. then i figured well they burned it so bad they wont be back for like a month, but nope next week, here they come, cut it just as low.

    i was amazed these guys did such a horrible job. these pics dont do it justace.

    Just for fun, what kind of mowers big companies like Brickman use??? And what is their principal setup ( truck trailer mower push mower etc.)?

    That grass isn't burnt from them cutting it. I would be very surprised if they are cutting at 2".

    You may not know but on commercial contracts you are contractually obligated to a # of cuts that are required each year. If they are on schedule, and there is growth it gets cut. The fact you say they came back the following week and cut it just as low states that there was growth, so of course they cut it.

    Dust is a naturally occurring problem that cannot be remedied without rain. The only thing you can do is idle your mower down. You cant skip a property because of a potential dust storm.

    Lastly, when you get to Brickmans size, try running it without Hispanic labor. In fact, when you get to 1/150th of brickmans size, try running it without Hispanic labor.
