    Hello, I am still working on contracts. Can anyone tell me approximately how many cuts I should plan to do per year?

    FYI, I am in South Louisiana where the weather is very out of the norm. We mowed our own lawn on New Year's Day. Our winters are not like they are in some other parts of the country.

    I do 25 cuts per year for customers who want 3 cuts per month during the summer(May-Sept.), or 30 cuts per year for those who want 4 cuts per month during the summer. The rest of the year is 2 cuts per month in the spring(March & April) & fall(Oct. & Nov) and 1 cut per month during the winter monthes(Dec-Feb.)....that's just how I do it...no exceptions!..and for those who want to be difficult and go bi-weekly or cut when they call...I hit em' in the pockets...payup
