    I try to explain to him that might be tough beacuse of the weather but will try my best to fullfill he request. He fertilizes it himself. I told him we would do all of it I was trying to be fair to save him money on fert by letting me do it. We will see if he bits on it. He is being serious about the 3 times a week to mow his lawn. Anyone mow 3 times a week on one property? I done 2 a week on heavy fert lawns that get water every day. I just don't see How I can cut his lawn 3 times a week. I figure it takes at least 3 days for any real growth to be cut off am I not Right?

    It can be done down here in July, but no one does it.

    I have some lawns that require cutting every 4 days during the peak growing months (usually May and June). Even after only 4 days of growth some of these lawns are very tall and thick and are tough to cut cleanly. Some people are fertilizer and water freaks, which causes their lawns to grow at incredible rates. If they want it cut every 3-5 days...I accommodate them and charge accordingly.

    Mowman, I wished I had problems like this. I have some that would get by with 3 times a years if they could.

    I agree. I would ever go and do it 6 times a week if he really wanted it. But, your schedual might get screwed up if it rains.. Let him know that..
