    Yeah I've noticed that. It kinda sucks there are the few Florida guys on here then everyone is up north. Which is surprising because where I live there are SOOO many lawn companies it's rediculous. I would think there would be more.

    Oh that's what it is. That interesting. Do you charge more when you cut those types of grass?

  9. Most def., you have to. The maintenance on a reel is way higher. But, properties that have it generate a lot of money, most of the time...

    Yeah I figured homes with that type of turf grass can afford whatever needs to be done. Seems like great houses to have
