    So how do you cut the grass that grows beind fence posts in backyards? Do you just spray something on it to kill it so it doesnt grow there anymore or what? I've just been getting down there and pullin it by hand & it's very time consuming, especialy when it's a couple acres. Any suggestions? :confused:

    Are you serious? That is really funny.

    What do you mean behind fence posts.

    I would talk to the homeowner about it. if he/she says go ahead and spray those small areas them i would spray them. but make sure with the homeowner.

    You'd better be sure before spraying anything on a customer's yard whether or not you need a license in your city/state.

    State or not, it's a federal law.

    Grass will always grow around fence posts. Even if you spray it, new grass will grow again unless you cut a border around it and constantly trim that. I never, ever had that problems as I can usually get the trimmer around it. Otherwise, I do what I have to do...pull them suckers out!

    I just flip the trimmer and get in there the best I can. No one ever complains about that grass though.

    If they do, use your hand or spray if you have your license.
