    Lately here the weather has been cool, raining at least once a week and plenty of dew on the grass in the mornings. I believe the grass is growing faster now than this past spring. Ive had to double cut most residential yards which is no big deal to me. I also have a couple of HOA accounts and one of them is growing like crazy. There is about 6 acres of turf and yesterday I had to double cut most areas to clean them up from all of the clippings left after the first pass. My question is do you guys double cut your larger accounts (multiple acreage) to keep them looking nice when the grass is growing like crazy?

    I do what I have to do to make the lawn as nice looking as possible...Even if it means cutting it twice.

    Define Nice. To me it all depends on the customer, the location and weather or not that it is the front or back lawn. For the most part, I do what ever it takes.

    Crazy year. Winter, Spring, Summer, then Spring again. Lawns look bad around here. None of the LCO's seem to be cleaning up any clipping much exept for me.

    The lawns up here are looking as good as they did during the month of May. Definitely have to double cut a lot of them.
