Hi Luke, The grass growing is starting to slow down. Im thinking we should start mowing every other week. What do you think? Probably go ahead and mow today since its nice, but dont bother next week and well play it by ear after that. Thanks for doing such a good job on the lawn. Pat Hey Patty, I typically mow until October 15th and then begin cutting the grass shorter each week in preparation for winter until the turf is dormant. I have found this to be the best method of easing into the off season. I expect all cutting will be done within 2 weeks, and look forward to a healthy spring season. It has been great year for me which you have helped make possible and I appreciate that! Regards, Luke Hi Luke, First of all, I apologize for not having your check outside. I had to take the van to be serviced before work this morning, and plum forgot. Ill send you a check for both last week and this. I think I have your address somewhere. I would appreciate it if you would stop mowing for now. My granddaughters would be very angry with you for picking up all the leaves! There were hardly any this week, so thanks for the gift. My daughter and her family will be coming up in a couple of weeks to rake the leaves and play in them. Well have about 2 dozen bags of leaves. What would you charge to haul them off? The second raking will probably have just as many bags (those cottonwood trees along the ditch are huge!), unless you want to pick them up like you did this week. Ill email you when Im ready for you to pick up the leaves and/or mow again. Patty -- By the way, she refers to a "gift" about me collecting leaves. I left her an invoice stating the "no extra charge" for collecting leaves while I did her service. I mean, she asks my opinon and then shoots it down right away?? Was I out of line by trying to stick to my guns with a solid reason to continue service?
