My customers lawns are looking a little long. Not sure if they remained dormant for very long due to the mild weather. The lawns that are treated are really green and healthy. Would it stress or otherwise damage the turf if I were to cut the ones that really need it? I've only been in this region for 4 years and haven't delt with such a mild winter before.

You should be fine as long as you dont cut when there is frost on them. We use our mowers on the grass during the winter for fall clean-ups.

I am in the same boat as you. Since it is so early it might be a good idea to call the customers first. Keep us posted.

I cut several last week/week before last. Pretty much did not stop with leaves and all. 65 bags of mulch to lay down on Wednesday...I've kept busy this winter compared to last. This year I have a large commercial that has something for me to do every week....love the checks that come in through the winter.

I cut my lawn yesterday.

Anyone notice where this guy is from, and he just cut his lawn!?!?
Unbelievable mild winter.

I will probably do some "spot" mowing this week myself. It's so wet here though I may have to wait for a few dry days. I usually don't start cutting until the 3rd week of March. I can't really remember a winter this mild.

We haven't quit mowing! The mower has been out and getting used every week since the leaves stopped falling...

You're right, I'm making calls today. Have to go measure a new account for mulch today anyway, so I'll go evaluate everyone and get the machine fired up for the season.
