    I don't mow wet grass if I can help it, more work with less than desirable results. So I will let the dew dry / let customers morning watering schedule finish before I get started. I run solo so I can start whenever it works best for me that particular day, I usually run errands from 8:30 - 9:30 ( get gas, bank, post office ect.) Get back, load up, pack lunch and head out. My day is done no later than 7:00, and that includes a trip to the dump to get rid of the days grass clippings.

    8 am when there is no dew. I'd say around 9-10 am in the Spring when it's still very wet.

    Depending on the day some days we punch the clock 30-45 min before sunrise. And are at the first job as the sun is rising...

    On busy days it's sun up to sun down.

    But if its slow day 7am- 5 pm
