0800a.m. anything before is pretty early.
i cannot see starting at 7.00 is to early
when it is dry
i have a few that nobody lives in that i start around 630 if its dry enough
the sooner you start the sooner you get done and the sooner you get done the sooner you beat the heat on those 90+ degree days......
i'd start at 6am if the law would let me.
you can afford to sit around and wait until everything is dry before cutting? must be nice. i'd never get anything done and always be behind if i waited for things to dry. there is always a morning dew on the lawn.
but what do the neighbors think about this???
We get to work at 7. As soon as we service mowers and sharpen blades were out the door and heading to customer houses. We usually hit the first about 7:30. Customers are leaving for work by then. Havent had any problems.
Interesting idea, never heard of that in this industry.
industrial; you start at like 12:30 am and finnish at like 6:30
I generally try to hit the road about eight. Some mornings a little later. I've started residential at 6:30 a.m. though before, theres only one place I'll start that early on residential and its a cop who works 6am to 6pm so if its a day she works and its the day her lawn is on the list I'll mow early. Only reason I know her schedule is she's been a friend of mine for years and she's my neighbor lol. I can't get away with anything bad around my neighborhood, I've got four cops living in my neighborhood lol. Or commercials I'll start early too.
7 am plan your route on the folks that arnt home
