    Here are some pics of st. augustine cut here in spring, tx. The grass was cut with either a 48" Cubcadet Commercial TANK, or a 32" Cubcadet Commercial Walkbehind.

    Nice stripes! Do you have a kit? It is really a pain to stripe St. Augustine down here, but John Deere Z-Traks seem to be able to do it. No one knows why.

    Amerigrass I wondering what are you charging for the hedge trimming and bed maintenance for those properties? Do you charge monthly for everthing or seperately for mowing and trimming? That is alot of time consuming trimming and clean up. We no longer maintain properties with excess trimming, people are reluctant to pay for what the job is worth and its back breaking work.

    It seems pretty green for 90 degree weather everyday. Do the warm season grasses just grow and are able to take the heat or are these irrigated??

    Yes they do especially this time of the year when. Its the rainy season and its humid as heck so you better be on your A game or else you will get run over. Beep Beep! Its not really that hot, July and August are always fun. Grass isnt the problem its the hedges.
