Is everyone back to weekly mowing?

I am back at it but some lawn guys are waiting a few more weeks. A lot of rain and growing nicely. My few rye grass lawns are off the chain on the bi weekly.

Still about 60% are EOW. After a surge toward the end of Feb, they slowed up.

Wow...u start weekly in may. That won't happen here. Too many leaves on grass and driveways that need to be kept neat.

Yeah it is not just leaves. We got pollen and some lawns have weeds that barely get cut when mowing over 4 inches. I went to Vero beach last week and most of hotels are kept up very nice. Shrubs are trimmed neatly on almost everyone. We don't get that much here. Most lawn companies don't keep shrubs neat and tidy.

We are still bi-weekly also. Have a few that might get moved to weekly starting next week.

Back at it weekly. Started in Late Feb. when the surges started happening and have not looked back. My properties right now are tight. Business is good as I continue to pick up business from neighbors who look at their lawn and the neighbors we service and see that everything is tight on ours and theirs are hit and miss.
I pay my guys a full 40 during the off season anyways even if they do not hit it, so it cost me nothing more than the petro to do this but has gained me several accounts so far this year.
Viburnum have been crazy as hell. I honestly do not know how those who are not using PGR and still trying to keep it EOW are doing it. The growth on them the last month has be out of control.
Pollens and leaves are playing hell with my nose. Citrus is in full bloom, oak leaves falling like crazy. Got two colder days this week so hoping many properties will be tight next week as I have a couple of installs going on that I can shift the labor burden too.

No problem with pollen or leaves now that I have my wolf snout. I just ordered it last week and it does an awesome job. I used it every day this week and now I am much happier. Try it out.
