    on top,New toro ztr 25 hp 60 deck high lift blades,come back in a week
    grass 7 to 10 high thick as h---,cut at 4.00 3 times passable,week 3
    grass 8 high cut early morning semi wet bad discussion come back the
    next day mid day cut 2 times at 3.75 all cleaned up.I ask the wife are
    you using the sprinklers she clams no & also cant believe how fast
    the growth is.Week 4 decided to cut every 4 days no problem,the wife
    comes out to Say how good it looks & mentions it must to the SCOTTS
    fertilizer we had put down.BINGO time for reevaluation of price.At 45.00
