A 10 day cycle is good if you can make it work. But the down side is if it is a thick well maintain lawn it looks better on a 7 day cycle without all the extra cut grass turning brown on top of that nice lawn. I adjust my mowing schedule to meet my customers need and to benfit the lawn needs. I mow every week during the season here in maryland and adjust it to the off season. Some lawns have more tree leaves than others which I like to mulch the leaves vice bagging them. When I bag them I charge a extra cash for that service. This is just my thought as a small business owner and a home owner.
Florida is a different ballgame. 99% of LCOs bill monthly. Its just the way things are done down here. We still mow 2-3 times a month in winter and sometimes 5 in summer. It balances the payment for the customer and puts the schedule in our hands. Its how you make money down here instead of the run around like a nut all summer praying you made enough money for winter. Every year this time we have to explain this concept in several threads.
