Haven't stopped at all. Have a few accounts that we mow all year and have been doing clean-ups all winter. Grass is starting to green up here already. Pace is a lot slower in winter but we still have quite a bit to do. We'll probably be at full speed very shortly.

First scheduled mow is usually the first week in May. Last fall Clean-up is about mid November.

Mid March through October.

First of March through mid December - typically anyhow, pretty mild weather up here. Winter before last we mowed all accounts once each in December, January and February due to such a warm and mild winter.

DID start in early March and end in late December in Atlanta. Fescue was March-Dec, but Bermuda was really mostly April-mid October.

Now it's year round in South Florida. Makes quite a difference for us mowers.

You mean mowing or working? I've been mowing for the last couple of years all the way till mid Dec. and starting around mid Feb. not weekly of coarse but mowing all the same. And to think, global warming is not real?:) We used to have winters here in the NW years ago but not any more:)
