    Does anyone have a problem with mowing St. Augustine? Basicially about the time I'm done mowing a bunch of it pops back up from where the tires were while mowing. This particular yard is done with trim mowers all the way. This is the only yard I have had this problem with and we do mainly St. Augustine.

    Take slightly less than a full swath and make sure that you mow in different directions from week to week.

    Semper Fi, (I hate that Mail call show, that guy is embarrasing but funny)

    I spent most of my time with the Tennage Mutant Ninja Turtles, well thats what I called them). Forve Recon is the official name I guess. Remember "Q" on James Bond? Thats what I did for these guys more or less. Weapons mainly. Worked in a shop making gadgets at Quantico and other places. Went to Lejune a few times to service sniper rifles.
