    I need a break, I cant wait till the growth slows down. It's still growing like crazy and with all the fert going down this month I am afraid it will be another month.

    When will it slow down!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    amen to that i hope we dont see a drought like that one for awhile....scary.

    We've startedskipping a week on some properties and I'm not complaining. Like many of you I've got so many things that need done with equipment, at home, the vehicles, etc as theres been so little free time this year.

    THis year was nuts...but revenue was well beyond projections.

    I think we all deserve that long winter's nap ....but with this precip pattern, snow work may be off the charts too....I'm tired just thinking about

    Hey it's been a tough year with all the rain we gotten here in the east, it's been steady going all year long! I can use a break too, just 3-4 more cuts here, plus leaves. Good luck!

    I actually want it to keep on going up here. The season is slowly coming to an end here. There is already a list of people that is done mowing for the season and I see for only about 2 more mowings here as well. Weeklys are being moved to every 2 weeks now.

    I hear you , our St . Augustine is still growing about 4 inches a week .Plus the rain isn't helping at all. I usually cut them back to every other week in mid October but I cant for see that happening yet . All we need is one good cold snap to put us on easy street till April 1 . Same money, half the work and expense. Chris

    I want to get to all of installs/mulch/fountains. I enjoy the design/planting side of this biz a lot better. But I like the steady income of the maint. Don't think I'm whining...I love this job. Its just time to relax and then get down to the EXTRAS!
