    if your customers are falling asleep while irrgating, Bobby -inviting water-weeds- time to overseed to overcome.

    'else you're just treating symptoms instead of the root cause- sparse turf that needs density.

    forget the weed treatments unless on bermudagrass or zoy.
    go for the aeration, dethatcher/slicer and good tri-culture seed and fertilizer bigtime. you'll be thick in 2 weeks there!

    good luck this fall, mano!

    Hey, Bobby!

    I've been in biz for 5 years here in Jersey, I tell you I never seen anything like it when it come to the damage done by this summer.

    What is your more common proble out there? Is it grub, fungi or just regular drought damage?

    Maybe that will make up for the lost revenue during the drought.
