Commercial at daylight. Residential not before 8:00 AM unless you know the customer doesn't mind and has no neighbors. lol

It really depends. I have clients that go away for the summer so I can start before 8 for sure. As a rule though if they are home I would say no earlier than 7:30. Most are usually awake by then so they don't mind. I don't do commercial so can't answer that.

All our crews start at 6:45 usually at their first yard around 7:15 to 7:30. Had a few complaints here and there but not many.

Residential we start at 8:00. Commercial as soon as it's light enough.
