    Sounds like you have a bunch of cheap SOB's for clients. Time to find better clients in more upscale areas where having a jungle lawn isn't the norm.

    In the pinestraw section under the 9.75/Bale installed it says (Topical coverage...) guessing it should be typical

    Topical coverage meaning for every 4-5 regular bales you can lastly spread 1 colored bale over them for modest color. This is cheaper than buying all colored bales.
    Thanks & I'm sure I'll be explaining this for some time to come once the ad comes out.

    Under 9.75 --- Topical coverage is 1 what - one yard. Did I read it incorrectly??

    Makes sense just never heard it put that way before but we don't do much if any pine straw here

    I definitely don't the whole pine straw thing. I would think trimmings would tend to get imbedded in it and the blower would make it move around too much while trying to cleanup. Kind of like the crappy Corbitt cypress mulch.
