    Triple cut, baby! *trucewhiteflag*

    This is starting to suck. Oppressive humidity with absolutely no wind until the thunderstorms blow up. Then all hell breaks lose. Yards aren't even dried out from the day before when it starts again. Had to shut down at 2:45 today. We got a solid 3" after that and it's too wet to go back out. Lawns at 7 and 8 days look like 3 weeks of growth.

    Its working just fine for me. The slack hacks are getting fired and or pizzed off early. Picking up plenty of new work. Some yards I was sure were going to be resods bounced back with just some extra fert. All the rain has me concerned about losing the green. My lushest lawns are getting mowed at 5" and look amazing. Really glad I used PGR more generously this year on the shrubs. Extra trimming really kills the man hour budget. Even my new house which I was sure was going need to resod is now thick and weed free. Only plugged a couple areas and ferted with spot spray for a few weeds.

    I concur with this post. Lawns being cut at 5 inches and are deep dark green in most cases. PGR starting to wear off for me..need to hit again but timid because afternoon rains scare the crap out of me wasting product. Hopefully I can get applied soon ...trimming sucks monkey....well you know
