How often do your customers get done?

Like the title says. What's the average time span people wait between mows?

All my lawns are irrigated. I have 19 weekly clients, and 2 bi-weekly. They all need it weekly, but the two are trying to save money.

all your threads you have posted recently are so hard to answer. So many variables. higher end people may wait 5 days. some people try an stretch 2 weeks. Lawns that get treated are different then not. non irrigated lawns are different then irrigated lawns. Bermuda is different then fescue. June is different then april. Im not trying to be rude but all your threads youre making recently is almost impossible to answer we are all in different parts of the country.

EOW customers seem to never want any up sell work. No fert, aerate, clean ups, lime, pruning, nothin'.

Many EOW are cheap and claim their lawn never grows. Yet grows so much that two week growth is so high it takes double the time to mulch the lawn.

I do not want EOW. I will do them if it is a week lawn that hardly grows and it is a senior citizen that is not well off. Though I always say that if the lawn grows to much then I will change them over to weekly.

All of my lawns are weekly at this time.

I have 7,10 and 14 day yards. I even have a 21 day yard. It's all in what the customer wants.

I have all weekly (weather depending) save for 1 bi weekly for an elderly lady who just needs it cut to keep the neighbors happy. 1/2 acre, flat, no obstacle, no extras. Mow and go, check in the mail every month. I will not take any more biweekly customers, however I will skip them as the growing conditions dictate.

This year I'm focus only on obtaining weekly clients and phase out the EOW. I use to quote a weekly and bi-weekly rate but have stopped that. I have a client that has always been EOW and mowing it is time consuming. 1 acre which house has septic tank and leach field is in the front yard so it is always being fertilized and watered.
