    I meant total weeks for the mowing season. I set my bid in for 28 weeks but I got to thinkin and you dont really mow every week the first month since its not growing as fast. Should I have set it for 24 weeks instead?

    Are you Serious??? You were kidding right?

    Texas-42 Mowings? Does the grass grow all year?

    I thought it would be too dry to grow for the summer.
