I see people on here cutting 50% of their lawns during droughts and calling those cutting during droughts idiots. We are not idiots, we enjoy making money. Do you get paid for skipped cuts? If you don't, then why not just set the blades higher in anticipation of slow growth? That way it will need cutting every time. Even if I don't anticipate and raise blades, I have cut lawns when actually engaging blades made VERY little difference in the cut, it was mostly just fresh stripes on the lawn. Unless the customer calls and cancels, they are billed weekly. LCO's get hurt enough by the rain, why let the sun bring you down too? Even if the grass grows 1/2" it's getting cut. If you skip a week you are not only making no money that week you are losing money by having to spend increased time cutting a jungle two weeks later. We don't use contracts in our company. Am I missing something here?
