    I've got a few houses where the grass is a bit tall, should I mow after the snow melts, or will they think I'm nuts?

    I would do it when the snow is gone as long as the grass isn't completely frozen or so wet that it will leave ruts.

    Unless you get an abnormally long stretch of warm temperatures, the grass will be lying down from the weight of the snow; therefore, it is unlikely that it will cut "clean." Also, if you're doing "per cut" arrangements, you might want to talk to the homeowners first.

    ashamed to say that i have mowed thru snow..it was actually patches of snow, but it left brown tire prints in the snow, because OBVIOUSLY, the ground was too wet. 52" Dane with valkie..duh..couldve taken off the valkie..or skipped the yard!
