We usually get to the gas station about 5:45am and we get to our first stop at 6:15-6:30 depend on where it is. We do commercial properties in the morning and move to residential about 8:00 or so. We work till we get everything done which during the summer is usually around 6:00pm, sometimes earlier/later.

I do all commercial stuff.

I've been known to mow 30 hours straight before.

I do 4 car dealers, so they're lit up all night just like daytime, which is nice if you get alot of rain, or if it's real hot, you can do them at night.

Also, I do 2 Wal-Marts, 5 shopping malls, 6 gas stations, all of which are lit up enough where you can do 1/2 - 2/3 of the property, even when it's dark out.

I work when it isn't raining, 6, usually 7 days / week from around April 25th until about October 25th, on average I suppose about 12-15 hours / day. If it gets dry out, then it drops down to about 50-60 hours / week.

Then I work about 15 days for the other 5 months out of the year, when it snows.

I start as early as possible. On Mondays I'm out there at the crack of dawn and work till 2 or 3. Tuesday to Friday are 7/7:30 till 2/3/4. Saturdays are for any makeup work, which is very rare, and equipment maintenance. Sundays are for the other things in my life.

With the heat down here during most of the season I limit the day 7 to 3. During this time don't take breaks just suck up more water between jobs. Pretty much 7 days a week.
