    My records indicate that I cut until around Oct 20 last year, is this about par with the rest of you. When do most of you quit cutting and change to cleanups?

    Looks like around the end of Oct is when i stopped cutting also. It really depends on the weather and when we get a good freeze. I start cleanups as soon as most of the leaves are down you cant wait for all of them to fall or you will never finish before the first snows.

    my last mow is when ever i get to the account to do the cleanup.... ive had to switch from mow plow and back to fall cleanup all in one week.... like last year, one week we had snow the next week i was back doing cleanups, it really depends on the acounts you service.. if you dont really have many cleanups and the summer/ early fall is dry then you probably will be done sooner....

    I stopped regular mowing last year 10/27-11/2 and then started cleanups. A few accounts I did one final mow in mid November.

    Same here. In fact one year we finished the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
