When does your season end or does it ever end?

When do you guys season end and begin I know in the northern regions it begins in late march early april, how about the southern areas do you guys mow all year round? Also when do you start advertising for your business for the upcoming season?

usually all the work is done by mid december. mowing is done until the end of octorber and leaves are usually done in november or early december and then they are all gone. jan and feb are usually our off months although last year i was mowing in mid feb because it warmed up so soon down here. a normal year i start mowing mid march but some people wait until april before they want you to start. by then the weeds are a foot tall almost lol.

This week weather we finish or not were calling it a season. This season has gone a bit long but the lose of 2 weeks at the end of the cutting season has made that necessary. As for starting up Not counting the office work were be back out side in 10 weeks or less.
