I'm a detail / tech person but NOT so great in the aspects of managing the Ebb and flow. The mowing model and application model have their conflicts due to weather. In years past on here it has been said, "work for a big national Application Co. to learn". [Too late now] There are a number of you on Lawnsite who have learned to ropes on how to efficiently flow and schedule your programs. I have been fairly successful in gaining full control of applications for accounts I mow. For 2015 Im shooting for close to 98% or I dont mow for them. As time goes on I want to phase out of mowing unless it is very profitable and worth it for time spent. I typically double cut [when mulching] and double edge. Im a recovering perfectionist so mowing is not all that great of a money maker for me...for the time spent. I see no real future in the mowing model in my market. But I do see a future in being a lawn applications aeration Co. with a minor in some mowings. Any help in this would be great. Feel free to PM me as well.
