    Just was wondering if anyone else has done this? I do it from time to time on lush yards. Today, I did it for the first time this year, was finishing up weedeating the lady's yard and totally forgot that she had a sweet gum tree. Ever stepped on a gum ball? Or several at one time?

    Needless to say............ OUCH.

    I wouldn't do it. No more than i would take my shirt off or my pants for that matter. Just ain't safe. Why risk it? Your not on holiday here...this is supposed to be a professional lawn service industry we're portraying isn't it? ;)

    Ever walk barefoot in you own yard after it's freshly mulched. Know how green your feet end up and how hard it is to get them ungreen.

    Barefoot while working in this industry?

    Not a real good idea in my opinion, but of course as usual, others may disagree.................
