    Compaired to Maine the grass was as green as green could be. The weather was nice when i arrived and rained as i stayed and snowed as i left. The most unusual thing i saw was mulch at commercial properties around trees going up the trunk about 1.5-2 feet. :dizzy: I dont know if thats a local thing or a request from the customer i just never saw that here. Also cutting there seemed to be mostly flat and the properties were bigger than we have here. Just wondering what the cutting charge is for a residential. :waving:

    That's called 'volcano mulching' and it's considered very poor technique. See these 'volcano mulching' articles.
