    Looks like good work to me Summit - I love some of those properties I see from back east. We do not have to many of those large yards out here in Colorado, at least the ones I work on are not that big.

    At 19 years old and the first year in the business I would say that you are doing great.
    Now tell me that you are also a certified applicator and you have the contracts to fertilize these places too.

    Great work.

    You're doin' it! Keep up the good work! Just a little hint, though; You may want to look into staggering your tracks a little bit, as the tracks in the 3rd pic look almost as if they could be stressing that grass a little bit. You don't want to do that, especially if it's starting to get a little hot and dry. Also, in wet conditions, this totally prevents rutting from the tires.
