When the end of the cutting season approaches, and customers are calling in to say "skip me this week", how do you handle a surpluss of employees.

In Oklahoma, the Bermuda grass really slows down this time of year, I continue to service fescue lawns until leaf removal kicks in in a month and a half.

But our daily lists are getting shorter and shorter. I hate to lay off good employees who have busted their ass for me all summer, but I need to ensure that I can survive the "downseason".

How do you all handle layoffs. I always hate having to let good help go.
