    I have this poperty that I tend to weekly. I have noticed that in areas where I use the trimmer the grass is turning brown. I think that maybe I have been trimming to short. I was wondering if I were to throw some grass seed in these areas, it would bring back the grass. what do you think before the customer brings it up. THanks

    it will come back...just keep it higher. Homeowners like to strim short becasue they dont like to trim, but you need to trim the grass the same height as your mowing

    sounds like you may be lightly scalping the areas you are trimming...try to trim a little higher and make it blend in with the rest or the yard.
