    After this week I will mow my regular schedule for 2 more weeks then EOW. I want to time it right to have Thanksgiving week off. Cant wait.

    Already started a few this week. With the cooler night temps coming I think things are going to drop way off now.

    It has slowed down considerably on the coast of SC. Time to catch up on my pruning.

    Weve got several yards that we will start EOW for sure next week. Several yards even today were more wind clean up (peat moss/ palm fronds, etc) than mowing. Finally! :drinkup:
  5. I already started EOW on Bahia 2 weeks ago and St. Aug i prob could start nov 1, but i will go to nov 15, then go EOW on St. Aug. The thing I am happiest about is the plants and weeds slowing down.

    I don't think I'm as excited as you guys are. This is our first full winter in business so I'm working my butt off trying to find some clean ups and new customers to keep my top guys busy all month. I've had a hell of a time finding dependable guys and the last thing I want to do is lose the 3 I have now because I can't get them enough hours.
  8. Do you service people per cut?

    Things slow way down here on the maint side of the business....so given your location....I would assume you would have to find a heck amount of clean ups....and I would think most folks would wait until spring if they have not done so now as they will start thinking about thanksgiving and Christmas and all the expenses associated with them. Good luck though...I hope it works out for you.

    You must have built your business very fast to need 3 full time the first year, don't bury yourself giving them busy work. Remember you can rotate them on unemployment one at a time when you need to in the winter, it will increase your rate but is cheaper than keeping someone on you don't need,
