I had an email request for an estimate for a small property in this new business park they are building right around the corner from me. Went to check it out this morning. Not a big property, wouldn't take all that long to do it. But, the big problem is the people who built the building had sod laid at the end of the season last year. So much of that sod hasn't taken root yet, and is just laying on top of the soil there. As I was walking the property, the sod was literally sliding across the soil, bunching up, sinking in, etc. Plus there are all kinds of ruts and sod bunches all over the place thanks to the guys who put the sod in. I'd love to give them an estimate, but there's no way I can cut that lawn with the sod as crappy as it is. I'd chew it all up, not to mention the mowers would probably slide all over the place. Will the sod take root in the next month? Or is it only going to get worse? I can just see the whole thing turning into a major catastrophy that I can't deal with because of this crappy work. Why the hell do they lay sod so late in the season when there's no chance of it taking root over the winter? ARGH!!
