Man most of you guys start early. I dont even wake up till 7:30 and I probably get to my first account around 8:30 I hate cutting when there is dew on the grass because of clumping.

7am residential as long as it's dry enough.

No complaints so far but I experimented with earlier than that, 6:00-6:30, and started getting a few calls. Occasionally I'll get a request to move a specific customer to later in the day because their neighbor works nights but usually no bid deal

We like to be on the first job by 8am.....finish last by 4pm.....mon-fri only, no weekends unless we are more than 2 days behind schedule which rarely ever happens.....we do have some shopping centers/ warehouse complexes that can be done as early as first light if we need to catch up...but not part of the norm for us.
