    That is a picture of a field on the side of a lawn. It was just cut with a bushhog. I can post pictures like that all day if you like them. I cut 3 acres with mower and other four acres twice a year with bushhog. It looks just like that when I finish bushhoging. Cut some 4 to 6 foot weeds with your Z and see what it looks like after 1 pass.

    I bet the school is more to blame than the company that cut it. They probably don't want to pay for a weekly service. Lets face it, if they aren't going to pay for the cleanup, than I'd leave it like that too.

    Thant type of work is standard for the guys around here on ride ones, actually many don't leave it that neat, uncut rows of grass, just a bloody mess, a slasher would do better, scrubs will be scrubs though, and to say the guy was a pro and not a scrub to leave a LAWN like that is rediculous for those about to jump in and say how do I know a scrub did this...

    A paddock is one thing, a lawn is another, that mulch could be worked in without leaving it like that/

    The other thing is, being a govn. school they just wanted cheap, the contractor gave them cheap, though he should of done better, hey, he was probably trying to educate the school cheap is nasty here is proof, next time pay more and it will be nice....

    Either way, that looks bad, but like I said the goons around here do a lot worse!

    The gov of michigan has all the cutbacks going on, so I would guess the school has to save any way it can. Up where I'm at, looks like the parents will be transporting the kids to school this coming year. Maybe I can save the school up here by doing the lawn care, never know.
