    We're raising deck height as needed. Would much rather mow less grass in this crap than more.

    I just received 3 contracts back this week. Finally. 2 were sent in March, the other a month ago.

    Had another customer that we cut yesterday for the first time because they don't like the tire tracks. Told them we had to get it knocked down before the rain last night and the tracks would wash away. Still couldn't mow all of it.

    Mowing in the drizzle today.

    Finally some rain here in Michigan. I thought my lawn was going to completely brown out. SMH at mother nature.

    Seriously, the new ones are around 5". No way we're doing cuts at 3" with the growth that is on them. We'll work our way shorter.

    I know a lot of you guys are in the lawn maintenance business, but not sure who all on here does what....

    Looking for a dedicated, reliable lawn fert and squirt company that I can refer my customers to.

    Specifically I currently have a customer in northern section of Rochester Hills looking for a company to get their neglected yard back to quality. They just bought the house this past winter. The property was neglected for many years. Have already hauled 3 trailer loads of bush out... and that's just the front yard!

    Yard is loaded with thistle, dandelions, ground ivy and other nasty things. If you can be of service, PM me, asap!

    Thank you.

    Now, if this rain would just stop..........

    Yep , I prefer it that way....its my call. They don't like clumps and I don't like mowing it twice EVERYTIME. They like a variation of stripes and cross cuts . Heck its the same lawn , I just vary it up.

    Winter jem boxwood took a beating, arbs, Alberta's, white pines even took it hard, yews got smoked. Nothing to do but let them grow out and trim.
