    If lawns don't need to be cut, I basically just leave tire marks.

    Clients will come out and say "Good job, looks great!".



    I'll never understand them... lmao
    this is exactly what we did last year.
    we raised the heights on the mowers, and started to cut the grass.
    we have stripe kits on all the mowers.
    the places looked great, and we moved a lot faster

      It seems the lawns that are "treated" in this area are the first to brown out. I have several that are full of clover and the owners love it since they still have green in their lawn. I do start mowing taller as soon as the spring rush growth starts to slow down. Most of the lawns I mow stay greener longer. What really saves me is the big jobs in the country that are basically fields turned lawn. I may only mow them every other week but they always need mowed to not look so raggy. I also have the pond and creek bank weedeating jobs to fill in. Work does slow down but does not come to a stop. Gives me time to work in my own yard.

        for the customers that have irrigation systems, I would sell them and install an automatic controller so that you can then manage the lawns according to the weather and keep your customers lawns lush and green even in the hotter temps, those with-out systems, sell them and install an irrigation system. Even if they have to pay it off in their contract, it is then easier for you to maintain happy customers.

          Keep in mind that you can damage a lawn by mowing in hot conditions like I did a few years back. Check the pictures below:
          How does this happen? just by stepping on the grass and going over it with the tires? I think I have seen this before but I just can't figure out how it happens...

          Anyone know? Thanks

            It seems to happen to fine fescue grass the most. Mowing and even just stepping on the lawn when it is dry must break the crown of the grass and the lack of moisture doesn't allow it to repair itself. That's my guess.
            Sure wish a full day of rain was in the forecast I remember when I was a kid, we'd get an all day rain. Now we just get a little pee rain and it's over and goes into the heat and humidity. Makes this line of work suck!!!!

                  NE Ohio

                  The weather has been hot and dry in NE Ohio also. We DO NOT cut grass that does not need cut. Yeah it sucks but just can't bring myself to do that to people. One thing that has saved me in the past when these things start to happen is to watch people start selling their equipment dirt cheap. You'll start seeing 60" Exmark Zero turns pop up for $2000. If you have the money jump on them. You'll double your money within a month or two. You'll be surprised what people will off just to get by. I just picked up a 16' landscape trailer last week, fully equipped with trimmer racks and all for $800. Sold Yesterday without all the racks for $1800. Think outside the box a little. There is money out there while we are waiting for it to rain.
