    I think the latest we have ever done is like 5:30. It's nice having employees and extra mowers when you need them.

    When I lived in Michigan I had 4 new car dealerships that I serviced. I would mow these accounts once each week (usually Tuesday) and I would start cutting when they closed at 6:00 pm and I had finished up with the residential accounts. I would usually cut until 11:00 pm and sometimes later. The huge flood lights on the light poles in the lot lit up the lawns as is if it were mid-day. But I had a light kit on the mower for those dark areas in the corners.
