So I didn't do a cleanup, leaves hadn't fallen.

did it and seems the grass is pretty tall, probably due to the 60 degree weather.

should i mow it? my buddy seems pretty sure i should

In the off season, I would call and ask them first, if you don't have a year around contract. You know what happens when we assume....:rolleyes:

I agree with this. Unless they told you cut if it needs it no matter what, I'd call to make sure. What state are you in that would need it?

Trust me, I work for people with mucho dinero, but that doesn't mean I get to spend thier money. They still want to know what's going on. Unless they give you full discretion up front, asking first is a wise move.

During the off season its just respectful to ask. This also strengthens customer relations.

I would call or stop by first, AND if they give the go ahead, I would pick up, if we do get winter quick I don't think it would be good to leave clippings down.

I don't understand why you're asking us. Discuss it with the customer. I always do a final mow with my final cleanup.....gets up an straggler leaves, leaves a set of stripes and keeps the lawn short over the winter so any leaves that fall on it are more likely to blow off.

well. this lawn was a bit weird this year. the leaves wouldnt fall. even now there is a tree with 25% leaves on it.

called customer he said dont worry about it. also let him know hell get free weeding starting next year. will be doign that for any residential payign 100 per cut.

esspicialy him doign it twice a week
