    i'm planning on making the switch over to the day shift. mon-friday hours are 6:00-2:30. i will be home at 3:00 my furthest drive is 15 min so lets say i would start mowing at 3:15.

    will it bother the residental people? can i mow townhomes at 5:00-6:30or is that too late. i have some commercial accounts so those will be last on the list.

    we mow residential up until 8:30-9. try not to make that a habit, but no one has ever said anything about it being too late.
    now being too early is another story...

    I try to be done by 5:30 or 6 on most lawns. There are a few lawns that I know I can do later than that, but as a rule, I try to be done by 6 every day.
