I have a few customers who just let their lawn turn to crap this year because they didn't have a sprinkler system and did not use any other method to water the lawn all summer. In this area we have had a brutally hot and very dry summer and anyone who didn't put a little extra effort into watering their yard was rewarded with lots of dead or weakened grass along with weeds, fungus, etc. These folks live in an upscale area ($200-250k) and can afford a little bit higher water bill. How many of you have customers like this? How much do you charge to rake the dead crap out and reseed? Do you use a 21" mower to mow areas you just planted several weeks prior?
