    Ahh. The most important weekend thus far this season for a lwan maintenance contractor. So long as the weather is nice, many people will be outside in their yards this weekend. Some having barbecues, many havig parties/family gatherings, some planting flowers, and they will notice how their lawn looks.

    This is the first week where your work so far will be most noticeable to a customer
    (residentials anyways).

    Cut the grass perfect(bagging if necessary), make those edges crisp, and get rid of any leftover pesky weeds on walks drives, or in the beds.

    Yes, everything should be perfect this weekend, and the customer won't care how the weather has been, just how their lawn looks.

    this is also a good week to mow just a little bit higher if it helps the overall appearance of the grass.

    We look to be in real good shape for this weekend, barring a little bit of paleness in the grass due to the current growing conditions.(we only have a few lawns on a five day schedule, the rest are ever 7 days)

    I'm hoping for nice weather all this week, but probably just a dream. Good luck, and happy mowing.
