    Well where's SA? And I know about where Pearland is. OR used to. Did you get much Hurricane action down in Pearland? Is it still in tact? I bet you need head lights on your mowers to get caught up.

    Well for everyone I am new to this forum thing but have been studying it every night for a month or so after mowing til dark and love the ideas, suggestions, etc. and wanted to try and actually talk to someone.

    I do have a prob cutting this one particular yard though and the grass is St. Augustine. I am a rookie to the lawn business (third year part-time) but have 21 accounts and mainly St. Augustine and no probs til now.

    After I am done I look back and there are sprigs sticking up every where from where the tires were and I do overlap. I am mowing this particular yard entirely with push mower (snapper hi vac) and yes the blades are sharp.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks A1. I bet you are busy after all the rain ya'll had. I have a very good friend that lives down that way. He lives in Helotes. Pretty country.

    I am trying to figure out all of these icons, symbols, etc...

    I would appreciate any tips.

    Grass was growing TALL but some of the yards I was doing today were already dying out with the heat.

    My customers in Austin don't water very often - like maybe when they wash their cars.

    Next time you post, hover the arrow over each one and it'll say what it means. Is that what you were asking?
