Had the chance to finally take a few lawn pics and such at UNR today.
Here it goes
Lawn up in Stead NV. God I curse that irrigation system. Its from like the 50's. No PVC all galvanized. Breaks constantly, but green none the less.
Another picture from Stead NV.

Same place. Lower left hand corner has a bare spot i curse every week. No sprinkler hits it. So thats a hand water spot. You make do with what ya got.
This lawn goes 2-3 in. a week even though its been in the 20's at night. Im amazed its not dormant yet.
The only lawn in mackey stadium that hasn't been trampled by 20,000+ people
This is going to be a FUN project tomorrow. Hrrm.. 4 3yard dumpsters at 8am. God knows how many bags of leaves at 3:30pm.
Married Student Housing on campus. Its green to an extent, but Im having trouble finding something to kill the clover. Weed - b - Gone and trimec wouldn't even touch it.
The brown spot that randomly appears each week and gone the next. Plently of water. Its a ghost.
This lawn used to look horrible a few months ago. Last guy would use a rider mower on it. Compacted the #### out of the soil. Amazing what areating, a 16-8-8 fert. and 5 weeks of push mowing will do for a lawn. I didnt mow it for 3 weeks to let it come back. Supervisor didn't even notice... Thats sad.

Any comments?

Thank you for sharing them with us first off!

I think a bunch of these lawns look like they are from a golf course! Very nice work!

Is there one that is your favorite lawn to work on and why so?

Photos are from my are aon the University of Reno Nevada campus.
Hrrmm... Favorite lawn... Most challenging would be my lawn just north of the football stadium.. Ill post pics of those monday. Just got it how I was wanting to see it. Then football season just destroys it. I spent 8 hours today blowing, raking, and bagging leaves... filled 3 dumpsters... 54 bags of leaves.. always fun.

They all look great! Do you have advice to others as how to go about landing commercial accounts?
