    Newest kid on the block wondering what's a good time to start in the morning? I figure 9am is ok but does anyone start earlier? If you do, are the (sleeping) neighbors irate?

    8:30 or 9:00 is my usual time on the yard.

    Started once at 7am and a customer requested I do not arrive before 9 in the future. I was behind from a three day rain and didnt worry about it.

    I'm with 65Hoss.
    M-F residentials gets 8AM start, I know which of my customers are up at 8.
    Commercial doesn't matter but the cities have a contractor start time of 7am. If you make noise before that, you are asking for a ticket.

    In the summertime when it's so hot, I start commercials at 0630. I never start a residential until 0800.
