    For those that offer both services , will you put off mowing to make your applications or vice versa ? Both services need to be done and with hotter temperatures coming I’m concerned about putting off applications .

    Depends on the situation. I look at what is best for the grass. Sometimes that means skipping or delaying service.

    Well, you'll probably get more complaints now about uncut lawns.
    What applications have you completed & what applications do you have scheduled now?

    I would cut then treat it. I started this way. We would mow then spray making only one trip. I had all mowing accounts doing apps. Everything we cut 19yrs later(today) we do apps on.

    I regularly skip cuts to spray. I mention this to customers that my spray packages involve sprays in lieu of cuts from time to time at my discretion. And the benefit is less work for me!
