    We have two more weeks of mowing and then finish up all the landcape's and hardscape's by end of November.. Then let it snow:)

    yea this is my first year and I only have one leaf clean up account, I figured I would be doing that every couple weeks till it snows?

    It sounds like you want to quit mowing. Some of us rather ask the question, "When to I have to quit mowing?" I hate to see the season winding down on mowing.

    If I can I like to give everybody a cut or 2 in Nov. it brings in the money... plus you got leaves to clean.In your case with only one house for leaf clean up try selling it to others.

    Yeah LOL, Mow until it stops growing.

    Some my yards stop now, others grow up until Xmas thou mine's a more southern climate, I'd still expect SOME Indy grass to grow well into November.

    Even when the grass stops growing there is still debris to be managed. It works out quite nicely because I can spend the time it would take to trim to blow leaves out from the sides and beds instead and just mulch the debris. Usually in and out in the same time it takes to mow during the growing seasons as long as they keep me coming regular (most do) so there's no hassel with trying to justify a "fall clean-up" fee. It equates to a mowing season through December (at least around here).
