I can remember the days when TG and Chemlawn performed 4 apps for their normal service contract. Then someone in marketing decided that if 4 was good, 5 was better, then 6, and 7 now? So of course, the window became shorter and shorter, because it turned into how many apps to increase revenue instead of providing the customer with a healthy stand of turf. John, not sure if you did, but I know many of the others perform 2 apps of pre-m because they do have 6 weeks of apps and can't get around quick enough. Again, a waste of money, time and not good for the environment. Like DA stated, maybe one has too much work then. What if a mowing guy has 16 hours of mowing per day but only 12 hours of light to do it, so he starts mowing in the dark and can't make a straight line or trim properly or blow off? What do we say about that guy? He has too much work, right? Or the guy plowing for 24 hours after a 2" snowfall. Or going around salting after the sun is out melting the snow because he can't get around fast enough, too much work. Too much work should not be an excuse for performing work improperly.
