That makes some sense. If I could find anyone with irrigation. LOL

In 12 years now, I've found one irrigation system in a customer's lawn (never used by them in the 10 years they lived there) and one just had it installed about 2 years ago, but I don't think it gets used much if at all. Nice, shady, city lawn - he got suckered into it by the landscapers who did a big job with the beds. Doesn't even need irrigation.
Lol, Bin mowing grass 40 years here.Think I might remember seeing one old neglected sprinkler head years ago in a yard.

In our street, there are two lawns they always been very green, also in dry period (the other lawn aren‘t so brown as shown above)… ours and of my neighbour who is gardener too. 😅

We both installed an irrigation system. 😉

Woo-Hoo!
I doubt it will help much, but I'm out mowing and the sky got dark FAST.
I hurried to finish up, loaded my mower, and it let loose.

Looks like it will all pass in an hour or three. Not enough.
70% chance on monday, then 50% chance of rain wed-fri.
Crossing fingers.

Had 9 on the schedule yesterday, 3 were skips. That's unusual too because I normally take time of year into account when scheduling so most were already 3 weeks out... I have two now that are going on 5 weeks, might even go longer, we do see rain but it's these 20-30 minute fast showers that don't do much good other than wash away some dirt.

I just mowed my own this past weekend. First time in at least 5 weeks.
Most customers are getting cut every other week if I'm lucky.
I DO have a bunch to do today because they haven't been cut in a week or three.

Already stopped raining...
:(
