    i had a few accounts this years that i reseeded the bare spots in the lawn. My question is when you guys do this do you just mow around the spots and hit the long stuff with a trimmer and just include the extra time spent trimming into the price of seeding. just wondering what you guys do

    Most of my bare spot areant very large. I seed the spots one week, mow around them 1st week. Knock down any tall stuffs with the trimmer, doesnt take very long. The next week I plow right over them with the mower.

    My accounts are year round, no extra charge for trim work. I'l get it back later

    I did a lawn like that about 2 weeks ago. The front lawn was just replanted in the fall and there was still about five 1ft. by 1 ft. bare patches and i had to go around them with the big mower. Then when i get to the back, it is the worst lawn I've ever seen in my life. :( I was very unhappy cuting that lawn. Took me 2 hours to cut this lawn that was like 20,000 sq. ft with a lot of trimming.
