    With the grass for the most part slowing down I just wonder how many would truly like to mow year around. I'm not talking installs and cleanups and such, just mowing or should I say maintenance.

    If you would or wouldn't state your reasons. I for one do not want to mow 12 months out of the year I like being able to have some time off where I can do what I want. Thanks Tony :)

    I personally would love to mow like 11 months year round. Just have one good month off to relax and reorganize everything.

    Maybe mow 10 months out the year. I get to go back to England for a while in the winter. Plus, after working in all the heat, the colder air is a welcome sight.

    We pretty much mow year round.......February is our dead month but we still make a trip and make tracks or get up what few leaves might be remaining......I'd like to take a whole month off but I don't see it happening

    I'm with you T.E. It's nice to relax or what ever for a few months a little work here and there but nothing like the non stop action of summer
