Know that the Bent is growing well I will be out Saturday and Sunday mornings mowing greens for an hour and a 1/2. Not that bad, sort of like being up early on the weekends.

it depends......I don't work every Sun. but if they're predicting major weather complications for the upcoming week..you can bet your a**, that my a** is out there on Sun. to get a jump on it so I'm not backed up after the storm fighting to catch-up. I do a lot of design and installation projects not a lot of lawn accounts... at least if I get those outta the way, then that will leave me time to focus on other projects....some that can be done in bad weather......I don't mind rain if I can still make money doing other things but I'm not going to bother cutting lawns when they're wet. Even 1/2 a day would get me far enough ahead if need be.......

I like working on the weekends because their is less people on the roads.

I don't work Saturdays because it's the Sabbath, but I'll work all day on Sunday, the first day of the week!

We work saturdays half of the time. Not always mowing. Only mow when we get rained out on a thursday or friday and don't have a chance to make it up. Usually its landscaping. 7:30am-2:00pm usually.

I schedule lawns to be cut Monday to Friday and use Saturday as a rain day . I also do hedges and fertilizations on weekends.

I work almost every Saturday and Sunday that it does not rain. I still work a 7-3:30 job, so I need the weekends to catchup with my 40 hrs of mowing. I like to mow all my commercials then because there are no vehicles or people to deal with.
