How Many Cuts a Year In Your Part of The Country?

Here in central Texas 35 cuts is the average although contracts often call for 42. If you get lucky and have an account you over seed with Rye you could be looking at 48 cuts. I'm originally from Augusta Maine and I couldn't even imagine trying to make a living there. I'd be surprised if the Augusta area needed even 25.

35 here, from March till Oct. Many times we get extra stuff from over seeding. Jan and Feb are our coldest months so a lot of clean up and tree work then. We try to ramp up the power washing starting in Sept and keep it going till Feb pretty hard core.

Never really ends, just tapers down, Nov will get 3 cuts, Dec Jan and Feb will get2. You can't tell until you are in it. Last year was so cold I went almost 3 months without cutting.

Regular customers still pay the same price. This is understood up front, helps make up for the brutal summers here. I also use the time to sell other services, mulch, hardscape, gutters, pressure washing, holiday decorations. I actually make more on the projects during the winter.
