For years I had weeded out most Bermuda lawns and mowed 90% Fescue. I cruised through the days w/o much of a fatigue problem. After the last few years' droughts, I figured it would be a good idea to get some again, since they don't burn up in the summer heat. Well, with the wet weather combined with rising temps, I'm already regretting it. It's not that it isn't mowable. In fact, my new 32" Toro wb I bought for these lawns mulches great and looks good. The problem is that most of the Bermuda lawns I see here are not flat enough to mow with the ZTR, so I'm walking behind the mower, since it's also too soggy lately to use the Velke. At age 39 that's not my thing. Add in super humid air today and hills to boot and I just about couldn't handle it. They also have about triple the edging/trimming per sq foot as the Fescue lawns. I did two much larger Fescue lots on the ZTR and breezed through them today, yet nearly collapsed on 4 Bermuda lawns back to back this morning and another 2 this evening. I actually had to go home and cool down. With the fatigue cutting my day short, they're money losers. Based on the time required to mow these lawns, there is no way I can get the price I need for them. They're small, but take a long time to mow. Psycholgically, people are just not going to pay me $50 to mow 4,000 ft of intricated landscaped Bermuda every week. Even in upscale neighborhoods. Even with a ZTR, they'd take longer since I"d have to crawl on them due to the crazy surfaces and poor drainage. Some of this stuff is laid at 45 degree angles, no kidding. I'm strongly considering dropping the 8 new ones I picked up and replacing them. Anyone else hate Bermuda sod laid on accordian-like surfaces as much as I do? Big flat expanses are ok. But these new tract home neighborhoods are not doable unless you have employees you can put out there. I need too much per-hour to make it pay, and it's killing me to boot. Toss in a much shorter mowing season than Tall Fescue, slower mowing speed that mulching requires, and I don't see any reason to take it on unless you can get a price premium. The opposite seems to be the case. For the time invested, I get less, not more.
