    Looks good. If the grass cannot be maintained on a 7 day mowing, Primo is an option. I do not think your lawn is that bumpy. In Hawaii, that would be considered flat.

    Can primo be purchased in smaller quantities? I've thought about using it. I'm mowing twice a week now but probably 3 times a week now that it's hot. I mowed monday evening, gonna mow today, then on friday before i go out of town for the holiday weekend. I'll hit it again when I get back monday evening. Fortunately, it's small so I can knock it out in no time even double cutting.

    Syngenta stopped putting out Primo in Quarts. I know that at least one post patent manufacturer puts out Trinexepac the AI of Primo in 8 oz and 32 oz bottles.

    looks good. I know mine finally started to take a turn for the better the past week. I just snapped this pic. I had scalped it way to early this year and all the cooler weather slowed the recovery, so i've had a bad looking lawn for a while. I take care of treatments on my neighbors lawn as well, he keeps it mowed really high, so its been really green for a while. the wife has been on my butt about how i'm a lawn service and our lawn has been looking like crap, the worst out of all the lawns in our culdesac, and i treat all of those lawns too. :laugh:

    I guess i may look into doing the river sand thing as well. I got about 3,000 sq. ft. any advice on how to do it right?

    Why did you keep on going? That sounds like it would have been the perfect opportunity to ease into reel mowing! If you are so frustrated by crap jobs, don't continue to take them when you've got doors opening for you like this. Be confident in your abilities; we all started somewhere, and it sounds like someone else did the hard work of leveling and getting it to where it needs to be.

    Remember- most clients call you because they aren't satisfied with what they are currently getting. Even though the lawn may have looked great, something was not up to the standard of the homeowner.

    That just looks awesome!!!!

    I am trying to get my financing in order so i can do this. I am going to start with a 1200 sqft part of my front lawn and see how that comes out. I have a little more than 10000 sqft of grass so it may take a while to get it all done. i also have to put the McClane in the shop to get it in tip top running condition.

    How long after the leveling did you mow for the first time?

    Gulfjoe-

    This was roughly 8-10 days post sanding when I started cutting again using my Honda. I didn't want to reel it with sand exposed.
