    We have done this through the summer months for the past few years but we are in the application business and not maintenance or landscape. I know from the standpoint of getting work done and saving on fuel it has worked well, as long as everyone is pulling their load. Most guys like the 3 day weekend obviously, but it makes it nice that if they need a doctor or dentist visit they are then planning them on their day off. If they fall short of the work expected of them, then friday is still an option without chewing up the weekend.
