    I don't have an irrigation system but I irrigate once or twice a week with two gear drive sprinklers and a hose if we don't get any rain.

    I'll probably just wait til next year. A reel mower is on my purchase list for next spring anyways so I'll probably just wait until I get the reel.

    It averages 1/4"-1/2" across most of the lawn surface. If I do my own lawn here 1/4" would be just fine and the lawn would probably not need to be dressed again for leveling.

    Assuming Bermuda, it is tough grass it will take it provided it has water.

    Buy your reel late fall or winter... Kind of like buying a boat.

    So over the course of a lawn you figure 1 yard of sand per K.

    Pretty much the same calculation I would use for compost.

    I would have to wear a mask to get 28 cents foot but your price seems fair to me, plus a bump for aeration.

    Gahh...so tempting. I really need to save my cash right now though. I've got a vacation coming up in a month and buying a rock for the girlfriend's finger. Do you like that trimmer? I was thinking about getting a tru-cut.

    10-4. They can probably get that in Atlanta on a 2000 sq ft lawn...it won't happen here.

    A mask and no chance ever doing anything for that customer again.

    I have a Legacy 30" as well, not for sale...same mower as a Trimmer but 6.5 hp Honda. They are great mowers but suck for detail work due to the drum drive.

    True that too, small lawns have just as much mobilzation as a big one.

    Note the linked lawn level guys had 10 and 20% discounts for a block party, so they can do 3 to 4 yards a day.
