    say you arrive to a house and complete the cut and trim but its very windy and there are no grass clippings on the walk, do you still blow? same thing about trimming, say you trimmed too short the week before and it doesnt need it, do you go through the motions or skip it?

    I skip it, especially the trimming in July and Aug. It evens out because sometimes you have to pick up a 1,000 sticks in the yard after a storm.

    I love cutting in the wind..takes a whole element out of the job!! I don't blow if it's windy outside....unless it's NEEDED.

    I think there is always gonna be some things that might not have to be done at times. I leave my accounts looking good every time. I believe in the theory..."Work smarter, not harder".

    I leave out trimming if I trimmed to low the week before and If I dont get grass on anything then I dont blow. I always leave a lawn looking good but do only the work needed.

    Good point, but I also believe if your getting paid to do the complete job then do it.

    Job is complete, but sometimes steps are not needed.
