    A lot of people couldn't believe that I and others were skipping lawns. Well, this is why we have to skip lawns

    I had to skip a couple last week but we got about 3/4 inch of rain that helped out. Nothing like what you're dealing with Tiedeman...that sucks.

    No way dude! Says right in our 6 page contract that we are not responsible for any watering issues that the customer may have. You work for someone, you are guaranteed a paycheck at the end of the week. Why shouldn't we? I have a couple of lawns that I cut dust at. They are paying for my service for the year, of which I offer every week. no ifs ands or buts. :cool:

    I am just above PR and its slowing way down too. I have been out fertilizing and using 50%SCU. have to get the summer apps in to make some income. When it does rain, look out.
