    I ve seen many company's cut the trim then blow .Or blow trim and then cut .

    I was just wondering what sequence you guys did it in.

    This works best for me because what ever I cant get to with the mower I just trim. Then blow evrything clean.

    Usually i mow-edge-trim-blow, sometimes i edge-mow-trim-blow, and if it is real tall, i edge-trim-mow-blow. And if there are lots of leafs it is blow-mow-trim-blow. Also, sometimes when grass aint growing much, it is mow-go... which is the setup i like the best.:rolleyes:

    I get paid first. Monthly paid in advance before service starts.

    Then (usually)
    line trim

    sometimes I do the line trimming and edging first then mow. Just to break the routine.

    My helper trims the back while i mow the front then he goes to the front and I cut the back. Whoever is finished first grabs the blower.
