We've had a 3 week dry spell but we're finally getting some rain! 90% of my clients are mowed on a weekly basis, and of those 90%, 75% have sprinkler systems... so during the dry spell I still stayed in good business. BUT for my other weekly clients who didn't have sprinkler systems, I would skip their lawn if it looked too dry. I got a few calls since I hadn't mowed their lawns and I had to explain that the grass hadn't grown much and that it was extremely dry from the heat. Everyone seemed thankful that I didn't mow AFTER I EXPLAINED WHY. So.. here's my question. If I hadn't explained why, I could have got away with mowing no problem - and put some extra cash in my pocket... what are the possible ways to damage a lawn if it is dry??? I wouldn't have mowed at less than a 4" setting, so I don't think I would have scalped the place.... do others pass over houses if they look dry, even if the grass could use a cut? Anyone have a specific policy on how/when they skip houses?
