Just finished the weekfromhell. Had to cut about 20 residential properties for a friend of mine who is out of town this week. He does strictly residential and all of them were large properties in high-end neighborhoods. Many of these homes were in the $800,000 range with 3/4 acre or more turf areas. Most are Trugreen lawns so you know how much N is in these lawns and they were long and thick ....many had to be triple cut....yuck. After these 20 I said to my employee "this is why we do very few residential"....he said thank goodness. THere were a number of companies in there cutting when we were there and nearly every on eof them was BAGGING these big lawns. Many had dump trucks full of grass and it was only late morning. Leaves were not yet an issue. I was just amazed that these companies would agree to bag these big properties.....Is this common in your area?? What am I missing here?
