    How many lawns has everyone had to skip so far this year because due to lack of rain, or, heck, even to much rain?

    We have had to skip 1 account because the lawn didnt grow in the 1 week we had no rain. that is one skip out of 50 weekly customers

    i have to skip about 10 last week, but this week i only skipped 2, one was because it didnt need it, and the other one i skipped because i didnt feel like driving to downtown detroit to cut a lawn that i probably wont get paid for until a month.

    I skipped half of them the second week of July and 1/3 in the third week. But got back to all of them this past week.

    It finally rained......

    I can't see how anybody in Michigan can be skipping any lawns,with all the rain we have had this year...

    Seriously...

    I also have it stated in my contract that any skipping must be called in at least two days in advance, and on the spot skipping will be counted as a cut and billed as a cut.
