    As long as there is work, it doesnt stop as long as the weather permits. You stop cutting when the grass stops growing and you start when the grass starts to grow.

    When does the grass go dormant usually? I know you guys being in the US and all..

    Around the 1st week of Dec?

    I am going to be putting down some fertilizer for customers in the month of OCT, so I think it will continually grow until DEC?

    my last scheduled cut is for Oct 15/16 this year. After that just the leaves are left, then one final cut to manicure it one last time before the snow flies, assuming we don't have a frost on the ground

    In South Carolina along the coast we end the normal season in early November and start back up in March. However, we overseed with Rye as many yards as we can to keep the mowing going year round.

    The grass stops growing here toward the end of Oct. and leaf cleanups go on into the 2nd week of Dec. I start spring cleanups about Mar. 15 and the grass will need mowing about the 2nd week of April (or a little earlier if it's been very warm).

    I've heard that the weather is pretty mild all year in British Columbia. Is that true?
