    Yep we are mowing 5 days a week, sometimes we have 5 or 6 to do on Saturday. Then the rest of the day Saturday we have to pick up the Extra work like trimming shrubs, and mulching. i hate working Saturdays. I really need a good foreman, alls I have now is laborers that have to be supervised constantly
