    I was wondering would you guys work all year if you lived where you could work all year mowing. Or would you rather not mow in the winter?:)

    we work all year hear and wouldn't have it any other way. Revenue is down usually around 10-15% in the months of January and February so it gives us a little relaxation time. We are only working 40 hours weeks during those two months, so it really leaves me feeling like vacation.

    I work all season doing the landscape thing. Winter I technically consider the "off" season, but I plow snow, so I still work

    Sometimes I'm off, sometimes not, depends on the weather here in OK, but one thing's for sure, the grass doesn't grow

    It depends on where you live, if you live in the south or south east then yes you can work all year long. I live in the midwest where its pretty cold most of winter and we never seem to get much snow if any so there is not much to do. I used to do snow removal years ago but then things changed do to global warming I guess and now we never get any snow these day's that amount to much.
