Ive been both solo and run with employees.... I take a vacation every year in Aug when its hot and dry, lawns slow down in growth and I leave for 1 week... I cut 60lawns or so in 2 days and then come back and start the next week 1 day late, customers are 100% ok with it. I mail out a nice letter explaining there lawn will be cut early that week and up to 1 day late the following week. Never had anyone complain about it since during the rest of the season I am always on a scheduled day heck they basically know what time im showing up within 5mins each day
I will not allow any employee to run my route ever! i put to much into being what ive become to loose it for one guy screwing something up
