    gahhh lee that's amazing... The grass here in Tn is doing pretty well I got one that is burnt up real bad. I dunno what to do about it I've been mowing it on 4 inches now for many weeks and it still ain't greening up... All my other weekly jobs are growing pretty constantly... The lady can't put any water to the one that is burnt up because, we aren't supposed to use too much water because we ain't had rain in a long time.... soooo we'll see.

    We're barely keeping up with all the rain we've had here in the Northeast this year. I have landscape guys helping each week with mowing just to keep our head above water (no pun intended). I'm not complaining after surviving last year's drought either.

    about two weeks ago it rained REAL heavy for about 4 days straight. There was actually flooding along the NJ/PA border. Now it's sweltering hot hitting 105 yesterday. Every yard seems to be growing at it's own pace, making routes weird with inconsistent grass heights. I'm about 1.5 days behind with this freakin' poison ivy explosion.

    I know the heat is catching up with a few of my lawns they're still growing fast but earlyer this season they were growing 5" everyweek not anymore. they're still growing though. should be a good season here.
