    Ah! i did not visuely see the salt in the grass but im guesing there is because one day i noticed as i did my run that the salt skips on the ground and hops the curb into the grass and also may have over shot but not enough to see. could just be worring about nothing but they are a year round contract and two years ago we installed 20,000 worth of sod which is the grass in guestion not all just a little. The lanes are wicked skinney To rectifie the problem of over lap i slowed my speed and adjusted the flow but still it throws it pretty good i would use a smaller set up but i cant make five trips to load i need the volume. whats the concenses!!!!!!!!!!!

    Trust me, there is ALOT more salt that hits the Turf near the road from the road crews than what we get on it from the lot areas. I think you'll be alright.

    I heard that the grass in New York is really easy to kill with just 1 or 2 pieces of salt. It may kill the whole lawn you better get a loan so you can re sod. No it takes about a half ton in a non paying custemers lawn to get a really good dead spot. Not that I would do that. He should have paid his bill.
