    Probably going to promote, hire and start backing myself out of the field next season. My list is a real mixed bag. Most yards are less than 3k of actual turf. Nothing super high end. The one thing making it manageable is 38 are biweekly, bit of a pain in July and August. Now that things are slowing its not such a grind. Diversity was the only way I could see growing any appreciable amount.:usflag:

    It was awful actually. I miss the good old days, really starting to HATE every aspect of this business.

    Just watched a neighbor get 12 pallets of Bahia dropped in his yard. Foolish cheapskates. He took a tiller to the yard 6 months ago. Weed festooned lunar landscape. Of course the house was foreclosed on and they are renting back from the bank.

    I did a bahia sod job a few years ago and they gave me a few pallets of sand and hay, calling it sod. That was it for me and bahia.

    Well he got down ONE pallet yesterday. I predict what little is viable will die on the pallets. All but my most heavily irrigated and ferted yards are now EOW. Fall pruning is almost done. Chlorine use has dropped off which means margin goes up.

    Anybody see the CL ad for a LCO in Hudson looking for a female to sell accounts for 20% commission?
