    I just started this spring, but got very busy fast with power raking my problem is this...
    When I look at the job it does, sometimes it doesn't look so good, I wonder if I'm taking out too much real grass or sod. I have a brand new 22" bluebird and I usually have it set on level 2.
    I noticed that I take out up to double what some LCO's take out of yards if I can actually make that assumption by counting bags on the drive way, other times even in the same yard it will look great. The front will look like crap when we're done but the back will look fantastic. If I set it to 1 it takes out next to nothing..

    When we do a lawn that is in full bloom, nice big green blades it will look like we cut it almost. Gotten lots of compliments but also a few questions on digging up dirt on wet areas even by customers who rushed us to get there...

    I guess I'm looking for assurance that I'm not fubaring up lawns.
