    yes. What the mowers leaves by itself. Striping is overated and not worth the effort unless they pay you extra for it.

    here is one we did the other day this week. They pay $250 to have it mowed and trimmed every 4-5 days. It is irrigated and they water it like crazy so its great for us for biz. The property is 5 acres that is mowed every 4-5 days and there are a couple pastures that total 2 acres that we mow every 2 weeks for an extra $125 per mowing the normal every 4-5 days mowing takes just under 1.5hrs x 2 guys for a total of 3 man hours plus 20 minutes drive time round trip so just under 4 man hours. i make out alright off this one and the customer refers us to every one they know and they all dont mind paying top $ for a great looking lawn.

    their bill is usually around $2300 to $2500 a month after taxes and other little odd jobs they want us to do.
