    How many cuts do you guys get in a year? How many weekly before you go to bi-weekly and does the mowing ever stop for any length of time.

    Thinking of moving to Florida. I am a school teacher also. Let me know guys.

    We mow weekly from March thru October, and every other week from November thru February. The mowing never really stops altogether. We do schedule side work for the weeks we don't mow in the winter, and We also just take a few weeks off.

    I am weekly April through October and bi-weekly November through March.

    I am still cutting bi-weekly on some of my acreage because it is so stinking dry!

    Yes, it doesn't actually every stop and the weeks I don't cut, I do other work.

    There are a few that we do every week. Most, probably 42 times. Depends on the year. No matter what, someone at least checks on them every week. Florida has all kind of temperature variations throughout the state during the winter. North of Ocala, you can expect to cut a little less.

    I think the important thing to realize is that most of us here on Florida are billing monthly, year round.

    That is all I have ever really heard of....is monthly billing year round. Even if you don't have a written contract....it pretty much is expected that your going to keep on paying the same even in the winter months. That is how myself, and all my family who has lawn service throughout the years has done....and that is the way I am running my lawn business now.
