    Ok, I will give ya some advice, since you are no where close to me. I am from ec Iowa. I usually mow between 20 - 22 times a year. Last year some places were 15 or 16 and a few years back there were a few 25 times as well.

    I average 28 mowings around Iowa City area. Especially this last summer with all the rain. I mowed every week in summers 2004 & 2006.

    I am from SE. Iowa - I figure 26 mows per year when giving customers the option to average the year costs over 7 months.
