    I had to carry a union card and pay dues for 10 years in my previous life.It did
    not make me a better laborer-in fact they discouraged me bettering myself.That
    is why I put a mower in the trunk of my car.I did not know much but was willing to ask questions of the old-timers out there.One of those old timers wanted me to buy his business and worked with me for a year.That was probably the best
    education I could have gotten.I have been in business for 26 years now and
    am one of the old timers.Treat me reasonably and I will answer your questions.Collin,you got some good advise and I hopre you learn enough
    to be featured in Turf Magazine in 5 years as a new star!Only dumb
    or stupid question is one that goes unasked.Everyone who is making fun
    dirtiee their diaper some years back!

    you took on two commercial accounts and you are asking this question.....
    seriously.....

    first what kind of grass is it??? if you don't know you're in way over your head....

    if it is centipede, zoysia or bermuda it is dormant.. only way to make it look green is to overseed with rye or paint it...



    POSTED BY COLLIN]I do know that it is bermuda grass and I have been doing this for twenty years. I was just asking to see if anyone has a few pointers



    I would have thought if you where doing this for 20 years, YOU would have given more information! I think you are in over your head, but that's only my opinion from your post on this thread
