    The off-season is coming soon. When is everyone cutting their mowing frequency down from weekly to bi-weekly.

    i skip 5 this week and most likely skip 10 or 12 next week. hard to believe how slow its growing. Nov everybody goes biweekly but i always work the first week of Nov so i can have Thanksgiving week off.

    there was two that i skipped this week here. we had a good steady rain on tuesday, so everything perked back up, but nov 1 will be my switch to bi-weekly also. i do have a few i still do weekly due to irrigation. could use the break!

    I mow every week October. Then the first three weeks of November. Take week of Thanksgiving off. Mow first and third week of December and come back the first Monday of January. This has been my schedule for many years. Clients are used to it. During the weeks I'm not mowing I spend the days doing trees and mulch.

    I'm not on bi-weekly yet, but I feel it coming. Probably around November 1st as well. I skipped a yard last week, but my others are still growing in.
