Day From Hell


LawnSite Member
I had a horrible day today while i was out cutting. I'm still young(15)so i'm sure i will have worse but here goes first i put on a new set of blades and the first yard i do i hit half of a brick that was hidden in high grass and ruin 1 blade. Next yard i'm at i hit a dog toy and send it flying and it breaks a window in the person's kitchen. Last lawn of the day i'm almost done trimming and a broken glass bottle is in the high grass so i could'nt see it and i hit it and it cut my face all up thank god i was wearing saftey glasses. To top it all off it was drizzeling all day long.

You might consider in the future doing a walk through of these yards that have high grass. Mowing is like riding a motorcycle.......always keep one eye on the conditions directly in front of you. I have had help before that stared off in space and hit every stump, root, bottle and brick.<p>Be safe and good luck!<p>Homer

Tim I started when I was 15 too I'm 28 now.<br>I've been through the mill also!!! As Homer said do a walk through on high grass before cutting. Every time I estimate I check for anything sticking out of the ground and make a note. You have many good days to come. Its so good to see a guy like yourself in this business!!! Stick with it when you get my age you'll laugh at it all. Good Luck Tim<br>Travis AG&G Lawn Maintenance :)<br><p><font size="1">Edited by: AGG Lawn Maintenance
