    I agree with Patriot. I'm not sure how you obtained your accounts but communication is key. Do what you have to do and focus on accounts that pay all year round.

    So 42 cuts a year, if you are getting $80/mo is $960/42=$22.85 per cut. Do most of you guys get $80/mo or above? or Below?

    14 to 18 minutes avg on a gated fiifth acre lot. We say 42 service visits vs cuts. Keeps the property tight and whining down.

    Why is a power rake a waste of time?

    The best lawn grasses are those that constantly reproduce new plants to renew the lawn.

    The goal is to reduce the number of stolons on leaf blades that grow laterally, says Ron Wright, certified superintendent at The Country Club of Mobile (Ala.)."Every time a plant grows new shoots, it takes energy," Wright says. "If you cut off some of the lateral plant growth, it forces the plant to use that energy elsewhere. The plant will use the excess energy to grow upward, creating a more upright and dense stand of turf." There are myriad benefits to verticutting, which has also fueled its popularity. Jeff Buchko, a product manager for Jacobsen, says more university researchers have concluded that verticutting is a cultural practice that's critical to turf care. Turf that is verticut can withstand the threat of disease and harsh weather better. Simply put, verticutting stimulates growth.Not only does verticutting remove thatch, which is a breeding ground for turf disease, but it also provides channels to allow moisture and oxygen to get into the rootzone, says Tony F. while
