    This is our first season and we're trying to plan ahead for what we'll be doing in the upcoming fall months. We're currently cutting in the Nashville area (Brentwood, Franklin, Antioch, LaVergne, Smyrna). We cut every week. About when should we plan to go to every other week or stopping?

    You can probably count on mowing weekly until October. Though I hear it is pretty dry there, so you might get a couple of "spot-mows". But my experience in Nashville and over here in Knoxville, is that you can count on mowing up till Oct. but sometimes I have mowed into November. It just depends.

    Typically we have been getting 32-36 mowings per year here. Keep in mind that mine are all on contracts, so that helps me.

    We get 32 and up in cuts a year we have work all over and we do several things power washing lawn care, so this helps when 1 fails go to some thing else.
