    I posted earlier of an lco who's letting weeds get overgrown. Here's the opposite end of the spectrum. He's using a nonselective. Looks like he's trying to save on trimmer line. I won't post any other pictures to save space but, you get the picture. He's even sprayed the length of a split rail fence. It looked better with the weeds, at least they were green.

    Here the thing.....You don't know what kind of contract or deal the customer has with service. I have two yards that want mow only and then my customers spray round up around everything that I can't get next to with my WB. I hate doing this, but they wanted their grass cut cheap and that was it. I hate it becasue it makes me look like I don't do a good job, but the customer knows best.......er......sometimes.:confused:

    I wish I had enough time in my day to worry about bad work from other companies.

    We have a few companies here that do the same thing. I think they learned that from our city school district, I don't think they have any trimming left to do on the school grounds, all has been killed with Round-up.

    Broke down in Mt. Airy a long time ago. Had to stay 3 days. Goober, Gomer, Barney and Otis looked at it. Couldn't figure it out. Had to go to Raleigh to get a part. Aunt Bee set me up real nice. That was a experience I will never forget. Of course the kind people helping me were not as comical as in the show, but the town definitely is Mayberry. Lovely place.
