What hours of the day is everyone mowing high end homes?

I have a hard time picking up high end homes for mowing. Most of my leaf jobs are high end but almost none for mowing. I'm starting to think that it's because of the times I'm able to mow.(3-8:30pm part timer) I completely understand if this is the case because I wouldn't want some to show up late to mow while I'm out enjoying the sunset and eating dinner. Just want to see what everyone opinion is on this and how many high ends people picked up after going full time.

if youre still cutting grass at 830, people are thinking youre a very hard worker, and a very busy guy because you do great work, unless you look like a guy who wakes up at noon LOL

It doesn't really matter, but for us it's between 8-2 most days. BTW, what's your definition of "high end"?

Am I the only one that likes to sit outside and eat dinner in the summer? I wouldn't want anyone mowing while I'm trying to eat and relax. I also have never seen anyone cutting these homes while I'm out but I do know they are done professionally.

That's the thing.... 90% of the time when we mow the only ones there are the house cleaners. We invoice 100% of our clients in $400K+ communities. Some of them I haven't ever saw face to face. The kids are at the country club, the wives are at Crossfit or whatever the latest craze is... In a couple of the developments we mow it's strongly discouraged to do anything outside of "family" time after 4pm.
