[QUOTE=Cedar Lawn Care;4866692]In Utah I have noticed this last week the lawns have slowed down just slightly. They are still green and growing. People are getting in their heads it's coming to an end though. People are requesting us to only cut 1 or 2 more times. It's kind of funny because most of my weekly clients I will mow till the end of October.

people are getting cheaper and cheaper, of course part of me understands why when the payroll tax goes up and your dollar barely goes an inch.

For real. Tall Fescue, Zoysia and Bermuda are the main turf grasses there. Zoysia and Bermuda turn brown at the first frost. Tall Fescue kinda keeps it's color depending on just how cold it gets. Even Annual Rye takes a break when it gets too cold.

Been getting a LOT of heavy morning dew on all of my lawns the last week or so. I'm sure that helps a bit since it hasn't rained that much. Still growing good on all of my lawns. Haven't switched my weeklys to eow yet. Leaves are starting to fall already. Gonna be a interesting fall. Going to keep working as long as I can. Past Christmas and New Years if I can. Hopefully we don't get any snow by then.

The rain we had over the weekend helped especially for aeration's since a lot of people seem to not listen when I ask them to water prior to our arrival so we can actually pull some plugs.

As for cutting its still slow growing. A lot of my customers have already asked me to stop cutting since they'll take it on themselves since its cooler outside =/.
