I too mow on an "as needed basis" for most customers and it is NOT the best option. I would like to switch over, but have some questions that maybe yall can help with.

Here in west texas, weekly would be no problem in the spring, but last two years has been excessivly dry, and we are on serious watering restrictions. This causes the grass to stop growing during the summer months. How do yall account for this? Still mowing the grass weekly even though its not growing? There were a few customers whos lawns probably didnt get mowed more than 4 or 5 times the whole season.

I have a few customers that have wells, so they can water when they want and those have been my only weekly customers. I guess what yall are saying is drop customers that dont pay weekly, and find more customers that water regularly...but here in this area, that isnt as easy as it may seem.
