    Hopefully now the guys doing the $18-$20 cuts on lawns that should be $35-$40 will finally get weeded out.

    There were too many to count down here last year. We average 28 inches of rain a year, last year we had 62" from Jan. to Aug. Since we've only had 4". Let's see how well they do now.

    I don't know the rules and regs in other states, but in Texas you have to have an applicators license to apply herbicides if you're getting paid. It might be a way to cut down on some of these fly by night guys if the authorities were involved.:nono:
