    I had a call today from a Motel in town requesting a bid on mowing and general landscaping(mulch,trimming). A referral from one of my residential customers. I don't mow but every little bit helps now. What has been the average number of cuts in Iowa/Midwest? I probably mow until October myself, would weekly mowing equal about 24-26 times not counting weather related conditions? Price I can figure. Things have been slow starting this year.
    Thanks
