Ok, guys I put a flyer on this guys house about a month ago. He had new sod laid late last year by the looks of it. Very lush thick grass. The guy calls me Friday and says he decided to go with my bid of $25. It's between 5-6000 sq ft. He told me on the phone that it was very tall already. (big surprise, he waited 'til the last minute) So I go and cut it on Saturday. We had no rain here for the last week, the grass was "dry". I had just put new excalibur mulch blades on my 36' Exmark the day before. It was not a fun job. At a reasonable cut height the yard would be a breeze but obviously at this stage of the spring it was probably 5-6 inches and very thick. I just put the mower at a low speed and mowed it, going over many areas twice to leave as little clumping as possible, but as you might expect there was still some clumpage. I picked up the larger piles, and figured when I mowed it again this week (as I told him on the phone I would) the lawn would whip into shape. I get home today to have lunch nad there is a lengthy message on the answering machine telling me that I cut his grass when it was wet, my blades were dull, and he spent 2 1/2 hours raking Saturday afternoon (and the poor thing has blisters!) As it was I spent entirely too much time there because of the delayed first mowing. What would you tell this guy?
