    Since Apr. the lawn care co. around here have done 3 appl. of fert. the lawns I cut are every 6 days and if you don't pick it up the lawns look like crap thats why I catch the clippings.
    A guy I know has some land to dump it on so it's not a big deal.
    The trailer is only a 10 ft.

    There's only about 2-3 weeks left until it calms downs then it will take 4-5 days to fill it but not that high.
