    Guys its growing like mad here and I am loving it.. having a hard time keeping up... took on a little to much work since I only do this on the side... I am always wondering how you guys who do this full time keep up with it? How do you keep up with the mowing when it is growing so fast and so rainy??

    I mowing between rains and having to go back over it whatever it takes to get through this wet spell. I think we have had about a foot (not joking 6" at one time) of rain in the last month. Worse than Spring.

    I can't believe it is the end of August and most of my accounts are growing like it is April or May. Some lawns are getting 6 + inches of growth a week. Alot of double cutting. Fun wow. :dizzy:

    Long hours, mowing between rains - like someone else said. You gotta do what you gotta do to bring home the bacon!

    Maybe we'll get an extra week or 2 out of this season! $$$

    At least it is growing now... last year everything was brown at this time of the year. It looks like I won't be skipping any mows this year with the rain which is great. I'm happy.
