    You're better off. I don't cut lower than 3" no matter what.

    I wouldn't want to win them all. Guy with the most lawns doesn't win. I'll cut at 2 but I tell people when it's brown and crisp they can bet it will be cut and put on the bill for each week of the month.

    I "lost" one this week because the grass was 10-15" tall after two weeks.

    It's nuts out there. I've cut this place the last two years and while it got high on a biweekly schedule, I could still cut it with my Ferris even with the mulch kit. Not this year. The growth at this job is unbelievable. I've been side discharging with the TimeMaster instead - it's the only way to cut it.

    I'm done. Not worth it. Several other biweekly cuts are going buh-bye this season too.

    Are you looking for lawns? Where? I have a stop with three neighbors that I may be willing to drop. Good customers, I have too much work.

    Anyone looking to buy a landscape company? I'm really trying to get out. Around 100 accounts with 85+ being weekly. All equipment except one walk behind and 2 trucks. Enough to keep 4 guys busy for 50 hours a week. Also plenty of landscape work
