# of cuts in Southeast?

I am trying to finalize all my estimates so I can get them in the mail. I mowed part time and started last spring with a couple bermuda lawns, 2nd week of April.

I have many estimates for both bermuda and fescue.

I have done a search on # of cuts but just can't seem to nail it down. This is what I am currently proposing.

Bermuda: 27 cuts, April 15Th through October 15Th.

Fescue : 33 cuts, March 15Th through October 31st.

Anybody in the Southeast agree or disagree with this assessment?

Fescue 35 cuts: March 15th through Nov 30th. November would be bi weekly. Leaving Dec for fall cleanup.

That would be sweet. We get about 16 cuts a year here on fescue/kentucky blend. For those who fail to water its more like 12 cuts.

Not from the SE BUT if it helps anyone in the Upper Midwest, I get 24-25 cuts/season here

I'm not calling you a liar but I find that hard to believe unless you are cutting like every 4 days. I lived in North Dakota for four years and I get longer seasons in Montana than I got in Nodak. I just seems that a few more hours east couldn't change things that much.
