I live in Camden County NJ. This year I did my first cuts the second week of April, and my last planned cutting day is November 2nd. How long do you cut for? Here you do have the cheapskates who will stop service in September or even 1 or 2 at the end of August, but I'm still cutting at least 75% of my customers and maybe 1 in 4 weekly customers have switched to bi-weekly at this point. I know that at least 50% of customers I could cut into the 2nd week of November, but after a point, even if the first frost hasn't hit yet, it's really pushing the envelope to keep cutting on a weekly basis. My policy is, unless you call to skip a week if it doesn't need it or switch to bi-weekly, I will cut the grass regardless and you will be charged. For better customers I do gradually cut it shorter so it looks good all winter; plus the first week of April is usually mostly weeds anyway so the winter grass height wouldn't really affect the next season's start date. If I was on a contract system instead of per-cut, obviously I would be cutting a lot of people bi-weekly this time of year. Next season, weather permitting, I'm going to be moving my first cutting week back to the first week of April and make my last cutting day November 7th. That will make it a 32 week season. How long is your season and what do you experience in terms of late starters in the spring or early drop-offs in the fall, as a percentage of your customers (with rough dates included)?
