    At least 3, probably 4 weeks...March is the most unpredictable month of the year. It can be in the 20's and then 60's in the same week. I remember one year I plowed snow on a Monday in late March and on Friday of that same week as mowing grass.

    we cut usually last week of April possibly 1st week of may. But prior to that we do spring cleanups non-stop and extras until the regular mowing schedule begins.
