Mower Blade Sharpening

Hello Again. Like I've said before, I'm only 16 years old and I am just starting out in the business. I currently own a 21" Hi-Vac Mower and I use it to mow about 8 Residential accounts weekly. I was wondering, in your guys opinion, How often do you think I need to sharpen the blades?

8 yards, I would go every other week as long as you sharpen at the correct angle, they should last 16 cuttings. How many SF per yard?
186,282.4 miles per second is not just a good idea, It's the law!
