Anyone starting weekly mowing yet?

Most of the temps in the mid 8o's. Mowed my grass last week and it could use a mowing again. Anyone starting early this year? I want to hold out until the 1st of April but It may not happen. Shrubs are also growing quickly. It is going to be a hot spring.

I wish we were here in ohio but were still a few weeks out. How long is your mowing season on average? we get 28 weeks on a good year here

It goes from April to October usually. Every week of mowing. Then every other week of mowing Nov to March. Same price monthly year round.

hell no! the earliest i will start is mid april. They are not going to get 3-4 more cuts. Without the rainfall, it should get you to every 2 weeks unless you are putting down a ton of N. That is why I use 9-0-20 in the spring, I don't need a ton of growth right now.

I can see you central florida guys possibly starting sooner as you prob didn't do many cuts this winter, but down here I won't.

Careful what you wish for, you may get it. Yes we get paid year round and do 36 to 42 cuts a year weather pending. BUT we also have more Lawn boys per capita than you Yankees do. Supply out weights demand so that our price base isn't all that high. a $ 10 cut is still possible here in Florida in fact it is more common than you think.

Yep, every red light in Tampa has an SUV or car pulling a garden trailer with the family MTD tractor on it. Hand written rogue signs "any lawn 10.00" on every median.
