For the weekly guys

Just was wondering what you do early and late in the year when the grass doesn't need mowed every week? Go to every 2 weeks or what?

only in extreme conditions skip, but thats what happens so yes go to every two but use only your discretion. your in this to run a business. some home owners will take advantage of it if you start doing it. but at the same time if someone signed up for weekly service give them weekly cutting until further notice.

I've got an average price for the season. So it all evens out. Usually around late August I might skip a week, but I always trim where & if needed. This year it hasn't really mattered because the grass is still pretty green here. I think the whole year might go this way for us.
