    Unfortunately, we work most Saturdays. Usually I can get a few off during August and September, but that's about it. I really get run down working 6 days week! Got to take more time this year for myself.Mike

    April, May, and June Matt will work on Saturdays for a couple of reasons. One, if it rained during the week, then he will use Saturday to mow. Or else he uses Saturdays to schedule other type of work. Like yesterday, he installed a few beds, trimmed some hedges, planted a few plants, and laid down a few yards of stone for a one time customer. One time customers get scheduled for Saturdays.
