    What do you guys do, when contractors come in and do road work in the right-of-ways, and when they leave, they've torn up the property, then attempt to smooth it out and place erosion control matting over the area without seeding or sodding??

    It drives me nuts that they're allowed to do that here. It should be in the bid that if they tear up a property, that it should be in the bid to replace to existing conditions, rather than natural state.

    Here in MN, the contractor is responsible to return torn up right-of-ways to natural (prairie) grade and grass.

    Now when I mow, every 10' I've got a big clump of green plastic mesh that I've torn up and need to unwrap from the blades.

    Even with raising the deck, the stuff still gets sucked up into the blades.
