    What time do you guys start in the mornings? I'm talking in residential areas. Usually I go to the commericial accounts first because noone is there sleeping, but when you don't have a commercial account for that day of the week and only have residentials scheduled. I feel pretty safe starting at around 9 am, but somedays with the workload I'd like to get going at least by 8am. This idea is probably asking for complaints from homeowners, but what does everyone else do?

    You are lucky there. The dew her usually does not burn off until noon-1. The first half of our day is always a battle with wet grass.

    I start between 7 and 7:30 every day. All I do are residentials and nobody complains. For you folks that
    wait for the dew to lift.......you need to get a Hustler. Dew don't slow me down.
