    Does anyone do any cemetaries on sunday`s, or is this in bad taste?
    There is a small 2 acre one i will be bidding on and would like to save it for the weekends.

    I believe mowing a cemetary on Sunday is rude.

    if the grass is three feet tall on Sunday it was three feet tall on SATURDAY, for pete's sake!

    cut the grass on SATURDAY!

    I try to not work on Sunday at all but sometimes you just have to. That being said, I don't think that you should mow a cemetary on a Sunday! Most people that are there don't want to hear or see someone on a mower. Think of what type of image that would put into a prospective client's mind of your company!

    I would not mow a cemetary on Sunday NO>Rude and just not a good day to do it at all.

    I would have to agree with the majority....I defnitely would not cut it on sundays, I would even hesitate to cut it on saturdays. I just think that there would be too many people there on the weekends. Personally if I saw someone out there on the weekends cutting, I would come away with a bad taste in my mouth. I would tend to do it wed or thurs so that it would look good for the weekends, just out of respect for people.

    We placed a bid on a few cemetaries before, and actually was a requirement that no mowing could be done on the entire weekend.
