    We are in south east Texas, and we do 33-36 cuts per year, just wondering what other's are doing.

    thanks

    Wow, 42 that's alot. We do have a few that we do as many as 38, commercial acct's,

    I'm thinking I may offer a 30 cut schedule this year, to get the monthly price down for some. 30 instead of 36 on a $50 lawn, would save them $25 a mt. I would rather have $125 a mt than nothing.

    I would try to sell them on 36 cuts first. :)

    My year-round agreements cover UP TO 28 cuts and either 10 or 20 off-season visits. The 28 factors in with dry spells, missing a week due to rain, taking a week long family vacation in June (I know, but I put my family time before anything else), and Fescue slowing down in Summer, and Bermuda slower in early Spring and late Fall.
