    One of my customers has only weeds in her back yard. Her son was a lawn service owner and he told her that he needed to sanitize hi wheels,deck,and blades before he went to another lawn to avoid spreading seeds of the weeds. That sounded like a good idea but a little impractical to me. Does anyone rally do that?

    Her son is a bit "cuckoo". If he thinks going through all that os feasible to stop the spread of weeds, that is fine. We need to ask him though...What about all the seeds that get blown in, dropped in from birds, and are already existing in the soil?

    Perhaps it is to prevent the spread of citrus canker? This was discussed not so long ago but in certain areas it is required that you sanitize your mowers to prevent the possible outbreak of canker.
