    How many cuts per year do you plan on giving your customers?

    Well, I plan on cutting once a week! But during summer times, maybe five times a month instead of 4 times a month!

    Every monday, or sunday or tuesday! or whatever day I cut!

    Sorry, I meant how many cuts per season
  4. I mow "as needed" cutting off about an inch per mowing. It normally averages 26 mowing's per season. More if it's fertilized, less if the soil is poor and it isn't fertilized.
    I have one account I schedule every 3 to 4 days in the spring.

    The most cuts per season was 33, the least was 17. (Not the same accounts).
    I mow "as needed" because I have big accounts. They want the lawns cut whatever it needs to keep it up. But don't want over-mowed.

    25 - 30 I would say...depends on whether they're fertilized or not.

    It all depends on fertilization, irrigation and weather. I base my maintenance agreements on 32 mowings per year.
