question... during the growing season would you guys do weekly cuts or bi-weekly cuts?
weekly, I will not take on biweekly cuts
How often did you cut grass before you got into the business?
Because I cut grass when it needs it.
I wait until it gets yay tall, then I cut it, however long it takes, that's how often.
During the 1st heavy growing stages every week, then when it slows bi-weekly. Clients get put on a schedule that becomes there cutting day every week or bi-weekly.
wont accept bi weekly accounts anymore
if u are just starting out take what you can get because you need all the business you can get. Weekly of course is better because you are going to make twice as much money but i would just take what you can get.
I started taking on bi weekly about 1 month ago and I have picked up 14 new accounts since then. 2 so far have complained about it getting long between cuts. 1 just requested weekly today. Take what you can... 14 biweeklies $ 75 a month are adding up nicely.
We do both weekly and biweekly (shouldn't it be bimonthly?). On the biweekly, the grass gets cut very high so we don't have the go over it more than once but that doesn't always happen. Irrigated yards get cut weekly.
I only do one bi weekly and thats only b/c its next to all of our weekly accounts so it makes it easy
