    I was wondering who all mows on the weekend. I have all residential so i don't want to bother them, but i do have to mow. I don't see a problem at all on Saturday. I start later on Saturdays, I usually leave my house by 10, for those people who want to sleep in on the weekends. My real question is on Sundays, can you mow on Sunday or not, or is it more just knowing what your customers will do

    I try to avoid working on Saturdays, but sometime get behind and have to. I go to church on Sundays, so unless it rains for a week strait I wont work. ( after church)

    I start at 9 on Saturdays. I don't cut on Sundays. All of my customers get mad if I do.

    I'll work on sundays, but i know which yards I can and can't do. I'll do doctors offices on Sundays if I don't get to them on Saturday. Had this one guy pull up to me as i was mowing and began to lecture me on how I shouldn't work on Sundays. I responded by asking him if he eats out on Sundays or goes shopping on Sundays. He responded yes, so I asked him why it was OK for the servers in the restaurants or the sales clerks in the stores to be working on Sundays? He drove off!!!
