What is the typical amount of cuts in Indy or midwest?

Just wondering what the avg amount of cuts per month I should figure on in Indianapolis.

Would it be like this?:

April 2-cuts?
May 3-cuts?
June 4-cuts?
July 4-cuts?
Aug. 3-cuts?
Sept 2-cuts?
Oct 1-cut?

Just curious as to what I should expect and do most of u guys cut once a week for residentials?

I cut once a week. Most of my clients have irriagation systems, so the grass grows even in the middle of August. This gives a total of 24+ cuts in a season. I'll start maybe end of April begining of May depending on weather and cut until the first or second week of November.

I mowed each yard 28 times last year. Although through the spring months it should have been every 5 days on several with irragation systems. Props in the city will only need cut weekly and in the hot months probably every 10 days.

I just purchased a new black 6x12 open tandem trailer with 4' side walls, front lock box cage, drop-down back gate, and brakes. I think I got a great deal on this new trailer for $1700. No advertising plug, just happy with my deal.

Wish I could get started big like that, but I'm just starting with the bare min.;
21 in, blower, trimmer, and other clean up tools. Thanks for the offer though.
