How many of you mow more than once per week?
meaning mowing the same customer more than once
I will respond on behalf of many on this board....how many times you would cut the same property in a week could depend on the following:
height of blade
part of the country
Which such a general question, it can be difficult to answer it accurately because there are so many factors involved. The spring through the hottest part of the summer I usually cut every 5 days. Sometimes a bit sooner and sometimes later. Weather plays a huge factor in the mowing season too.
We have a few that wants cut twice a week. I try to discourage it but some peeps are stubern
I ask because I have problems with customers that only want mowing once a week, but in spring and early summer when the stuff is growing like "grass" It should definately be cut at about 5 days. It is hard to explain to these pita's that it needs cut more often.
If i cut lower (currently cutting at 3) would that reduce the speed of growth?
If you cut extremely low you will run into scalping issues. You might also casue the grass to turn yellow because it cannot hold enough moisture. Just my $.02
yeah i really dont want to cut lower. I was just asking
I like the cut it high and often theory. High grass equals less weeds and more money in your pocketbook.
