    Well contacted him today. Going to do his on Fridays so if it does rain on Thursdays i might be able to do it on Friday. He is also not going to water the night before so that will probably make all the difference. Besides i will make better time on Tuesdays considering the few i have before my other job are all on the same street now:)

    Did his today, we haven't had rain since Tuesday so the soil was dry. He didn't water last night so that was good. But the the grass was still freaking wet. Soil was hard as a rock. It's all shade most of the day. But at least i didn't rut anything. You can see wheel marks in the grass because it did just push it over pretty much.

    Sounds good OP.

    Now do yourself a favor and don't treat this guy any better than you would with anyone else. Stop sweating it.
    I tend to worry about certain whiners myself, and it just isn't worth it.

    Yeah i try not to...What was interesting is his neighbors had another lawn company cutting their lawn and it might have been the company my customer got rid of. What was funny is one of the Mexicans gave me a dirty look when i passed him:laugh: Or maybe because the new guy is getting their old business:laugh:
