    lol. I know what you mean. I use to work on a golf couse as well. That was the most dreaded job there.

    What's so bad about them? The last one I seen was 20+ years ago a crew mowing a hill in front of a car dealership.

    Using a Flymower can get a little old if you're doing 80 bunker faces and slopes on a golf course. Exhausting on the body. Sometimes hard to hold your footing too.

    Rye is the best and easiest grass to stripe. You don't even need a striping kit and you can leave some decent stripes. Awesome work.

    How much rye did you use and what did you do to prep the ground. I just put out 500lbs on a Ball field 3 weeks ago and it does not look that good.

    the job look good:usflag:

    The name of my company is Cutting Edge Augusta, LLC. We are out of evans, Ga.

    All we did was scalp the grass down, put out starter fert and lay the seed. We used about 80lbs total front and back.

    If you only put the seed out three week ago yours still hasn't germinated completely. Honestly three weeks ago was a little to late. the best time is usually mid-late september. This year was a little hotters so late september was the perfect time.

    I do have some before pics somehere. I will lool for them. I think I posted a few before pics of the wall.
