    All you guys that put grass clippings in dumpsters, what do the waste companies say about that? If you do that here they will not empty that dumpster, then you get a pissed off customer.

    Can't do that around my area also. Can get fined.

    Hey guys, Maybe we can start a new forum for noobs like us. We can have that guy with the Dodges set the standards of noobility for us. You know he has a vast wealth of kmowledge we can tap into.:)

    Sir, you need a dump insert or a dump truck. My back just aches looking at that pile.

    i find the lawn guys who pile there grass so high and don't put a tarp over the top letting it fall out of the truck as they drive extremely rude, inconsiderate and annoying.

    i only fill my truck bed to the top of the rails, maybe a little higher, but if i can't get my 6' x 8' tarp over the top and secured down then i'm putting in to much.

    that pic there is never something you'll find me doing. i'd even consider turning someone over to the law for something like that and yes there is a law against stuff like that.

    I just let them fly because one third of the lawns nitrogen is in those clipping. If your running into thatch problems then you need to restore the lawns micro organisms in the form of compost tea or just a layer of compost on the lawn. In my experience fertilizers tend to kill off the micro organisms and then the thatch comes soon after. I live in the north east and just letting them fly seems to work great for me. I even took over for a guy who was bagging and the lawn looked like crap when i got there. At the end of the season it was nice and green and hardly any weeds because i also let it grow higher then most and that shades out allot of weeds.

    humm thats odd.... ive been doing this for 6 years. Im trying to offer my clients a higher level of service, and i feel bagging the lawns will help improve the look of there lawn. Also i feel i may have a nich if i bag lawns because i will be the only company in town that will offer this service.
