Dont get me wrong, the ones on todays route are still growing good. The mow and gos I was on yesterday though were spotty at best to find much growth. Only reason I was throwing grass was because I had dropped the deck.

Most of my lawns are still green and growing fast. I'm planning on cutting them all next week, skip as needed the week of the 21st, and then do final cuts on everything the first week of November. From what I can remember, my final cuts the last two years have been the first week of November also.

My mow and gos are slowing rapidly,but my maintained lawns are growing good. Im cutting everything next week, with a dropped deck, then im going into cleanup mode. Most of my properties get two cleanups per fall. Got most of my gardens done, time to start my cleanups we do 3 a year on. Im ready for some leaf money!

I just did my last 'Scheduled" mowing today (November 3rd). I still have a few more customers that want me to mow through November but for the rest of them, they are all done. I started Fall Clean ups and Pruning last week as the majority of the lawns have stopped growing and the leaves started falling heavy during last weeks storm.

Bad customer in Farmington Hills. Carl Solvia. Cut his lawn for a month and a half and refuses to pay. Watch out for this guy. He is a real nut job.

Who else is extremely frustrated that we basically had 2 weeks to get final cleanups done before we hit freezing weather? I was mowing grass the first week of this month for regulars... I still have some final mowing to do for my not so regulars........
