    With the lack of heavy rain and a little bit cooler the grass is slowing down. I see the happy faces hanging out of trucks as I drive by. I am glad that most propertys really don't need much string trimming. This saves a ton of time. I have been skipping most of my Bahia lawns. How are your lawns doing growth wise?

    Ya! I am one of those with a happy face! Its been one week without rain and I noticed a few Bahia lawns starting to dry out yesterday. I believe in my area was record rainfall this year so I'm enjoying it! String trimming the swales at some properties was a pain this year! They held water most of the season, but it was worth doing because you see some yards with 4 foot tall weeds in them and look like crap. I might be able to skip some lawns next week as well.

    We're not in FL, but what is it about not having to trim that makes guys smile? Personally I'd rather trim than mow and my guys think that I'm crazy for it, which is arguable....

    Almost no growth, and trimming stinks! I'd rather ride a mower any day

    I agree I am glad to see the rain stop, enough is enough. I started moving some accounts to by-weekly this week, a much welcomed break. :drinkup:

    Agreed, the rain this year was unreal. No matter how long I do this for a living though I am always amazed at how quickly the work load reduces in mid October every year.
