<B>YOU KNOW THATS A GOOD QUESTION TO ASK.</B> WHEN I USED TO MOW THAT WAS THE BIGEST COMPLANT WAS THE TIRE AND SCALP MARKS.
Geogun, As others have said here before on this board, under a lot of differant conditions you can leave those bare spots. It may be wet, dry, hilly, soft, hard. Or one may be jamming with his/her favorite song.
IT HAPPENS ! Even to you. :}
I think that the customer knows this also. A little seed may go a long way for a better customer relation.
If I caught a lawn operator applying rye seed to some bare spot/ burn mark on my Marathon II I'd think twice about keeping them. There's no way i want somneone applying anothing to my lawn without my permission. Being in the maintenance business for 11 years, this is a strick practice i go by. I never do anything "EXTRA" unless i have their permission in a written "Change Order".
