    Weekly, 30-33 cuts. Drought and extended growing season could change that number.

    Been averaging 32-34 cuts per season for past 5 years. That is high-end accounts with irrigation. Others may be around 28 which go dormant in summer.

    I have been between 30 - 35 cuts a season for the last several years. I do have customers that want more frequent mowing.

    Our growing season here is first of April through last of October and at 4 weeks per month that is 7 months = 28 cuts.

    7 months x avg 30 days a month= 210days divided by 7 days a week= 30 weeks in my book;) marc

    Here in southern INd i get around 32-35 cuts per season and some customers call me in Feb, In fact ive had two call me last week for lawn cuts, because a few leafs blowed on there yards.. Which gives me 36-38 sometimes. Ive been busy working on clearing a 2-acer fence from small suckers and weed growth,and a few larger trees...on one of my hilliest yds,but a verygood paying client....Late Feb is getting close...

    I've got two maintenance deals going. # 1 is for 26 yearly visits and #2 is for 36 yearly visits. About 75% of my current customers are on the #1 deal.

    We give mainly 40 to 42 visits per year. The are some that are 26 and even some that are 52. We just have a longer season because of the weather. It's kind of nice. Our only down time is mid January through mid February, and it's not really down.
    I hate cold weather. :cool:
