    Here in my area there are quite a few lcos that will not mow chemlawn treated properties.
    They say the lawns on those props clog up the mowers.
    and increase the wear and tear on their mowers.
    Does anyone have these or other problems with chemlawn treated lawns?
    Or are these lcos just nuts?

    there is no local chemlawn that i am aware of around here, years ago i saw a tg truck, but not lately. i would, but the pay would have to be right and they would have to understand that i wouldn't accept responsibility for any dead spots, etc.

    As long as I can mow when I feel it was necessary I have no trouble with mowing CL/TG lawn.
    Twice a week to mow off some sparse top growth is OK by me

    Yep thats the way i do it. I have a few TG lawns that I mow twice a week to keep them from getting out of hand. payup I tell them twice a week or use someone other than TG.

    last year true/chem started doing lawn cutting in my area, only seeing one truck and trailer so far in my area I'm sure a fleet of them isn't far behind

    Exactly....twice a week! friday,tuesday,friday,tuesday. BEWARE, chemlawn will try to blame a lawn problem on the LCO
