View Full Version : Still Cuttin?

12-20-2001, 08:07 PM
Is anyone still cutting grass? I went by this house to day and say this guy mowing his yard! I couldn't believe it, it's almost winter, and there's this guy cuttin his grass. Kind of unusual (in this area anyway) for this time of year, although I have seen some tall green grass in some places. Just thought that was interesting.

Rained Monday and have cut 18 since Tuesday, today being Thursday, and I have 21 to get done by Christmas. Have been cutting every other week and grass was pretty thick today at a few yards. The weather man says possible hard freeze for next week though.

Had a few last week and if we dont get some cold weather soon I'm sure I'll be back at it after X-mas, especially to my irrigated clients.

Yes, we are still cutting here on the heavy fertilized yards(commercial accounts). Cold and very windy today, should start to slow down.

Our mowing seasons are 28 weeks on average. Put my Toro WB up for the season on 12/14. Sure enough, customer calls next morning asking me to mow yard one last time!!! Never thought I would be dodging Christmas lights on my Toro!!!! Only 10 weeks til spring cleanups!!!

Thank God for St. Augustine grass. Cut 3 lawns today. That S. A. is still growing. All those leaves falling make for extra clean up and mulching work.

Here in Western PA we are having an unusually warm spell for this time of year. I'm doing a lot of landscape jobs, and most of my customers' lawns could use another cut. I've been seeing some other local LCO's out cutting as well.

We have had two nights below 50 degrees/ 80 + in daytime. Still cutting 15-20 yards each day and trying to mill all extension cords going to Christmas decorations.

I did a final cutting/cleanup on my lawn yesterday.It has been a month since i last cut,right before T-giving,but the warm weather made it grow some,and since theirs no snow,I wanted to clean up the leaves,and liven up the stripes which were starting to fade after a month.It looks great agian,I cant believe when i cut it,the dead tips came off,and where i am fertilizing,the grass is nice and green.
