    Yeah, we don't really like to take on too many of these type of lawns unless the pay is good. But in this case the customer had a lawn that we were cutting with a regular rotary mower but he converted over to a short cut bermuda. It's just that the maintenance cost for the reel mowers are costly compared to a rotary mower. And we really don't have that good of a reel mower and we don't have enough of these accounts to go out and spend nearly $2,000 on one of those nice reel mowers.

    Yes we have periwinkles in our area. But I couldn't tell you if we have that disease that you are talking about. We provided some for a customer of ours about 2 months ago and they looked good and healthy. Whats the disease look like or do to the flower/plant?

    The plant just withers away it looks like it needs water but the root system just dies. It is a ground disease that gets splashed up on the plant. Cora was a fix but not working any longer. The only way to get around it is to bring in new soil in the bed each year.
