    You got that right, can't get your blades sharp enough to not leave stragglers. I've had a little experience with it, glad I don't have to cut it anymore. I would charge a premium to cut it again.

    LOL - I was thinking the same thing yesterday. Today was a little better but still warm as hell. The few lawns I have that are Bahia did slow down for the most part. I have one that apparently gets lots of fert and irrigation....it has been a nightmare all year..kind of like mowing a hay field once a week. I was always looking behind me for the bailer but it was never there.
     
  4. I dint get the people that get Bahia and fert/irrigate it....

    Me too - kills me. :cry: Although I will not say Bahia is a attractive turf grass yet...I will say this lawn at least makes me see that it does have some potential and does not have to look like a roadside.
     
  7. The last 2 days were tough. Not as bad as the hell months, but still hot. I was dripping all day today.

    3 shirts in the field & one for the way home. Hot, humid but no rain. Have to make the rounds this PM and start up all my irrigation.
