    7. I cant see how else it would work. I have a few crappy ones that are every other week. but 5 days or 10 i wouldnt bother with unless you need it. I did do it when i started out, so if thats the case do it as they want it, but if you dont need the money its not worth the trouble.

    All my lawns are as needed and I determine when it's needed. Have never had any complaints, all the lawns look good all the time.

    If you have a full schedule I'm not sure there is any other way.

    I have some very few properties with sprinkler systems that are done every 4 to 5 days

    all lawns are cut as need, spring and fall 5 day cut for residentials. commercials are cut on a 3-5 day cut schedule; sometimes but it is rare in the fall lawns are done on a 2 day or the next day. all depends on the customers needs. and yes lawns are cut on sundays before 1pm

    We can only mow each property every 7 days. But i wish i could mow some every 5 days in the spring.

    We try to keep our routes as tight as possible, so we go to certain routes on certain days (mon-NorthWest, Tues-East, Wed-South, Thurs-HOA & lawns in subdiv, Fri-NorthEast). So it works out to every 7 days. On routes with openings in the schedule we market while we're there.
