we do have a good amount of work up here! i am just starting out.. i have 9 accounts and usually have one or two small side jobs a week. (mulching, sod, maybe redoing a lawn or 2) luckily my uncle is an investor and he buys foreclosures in the area, i pick them up from him and mow down the yard, trim the hedges and put some new mulch down. easy money

Depends on what your customer wants to pay. The one I have gets mowed approximately 22 times/year.

I'm in Myrtle Beach east of 17. The weather here is warmer than where you are. We rarely get a freeze and I am not sure what snow looks like. I have nothing to mow in March, twice in April, your summer months look right but no mowing in Nov unless it is leaf clean up.

With most of my Bermuda customers, I am able to convince them to keep up bi-weekly visits during the winter for leaf clean up, mulched bed cleaning, etc.
