A one man operation would be more difficult to take a vacation for obvious reasons.

However, depending on your work schedule. If you cut lawns say 3 days or 4 days a week, leaving 2 or 3 days for the extra work. What real harm is there to take a 3 day weekend? You would probably work the Sunday before and do some of the extra work. It all depends on your work schedule and what you are willing to do to get that 3 or 4 day weekend. If you're in the North, you do have the winter off season. If your in the south, you would still have some down time, though not as much as the Northern folk.

If you have a crew/s. You are then able to take days as you see fit. Now if you do that, there should be nothing stopping you from taking a week. Just remember that your workers are as deserving some time off.

Myself, what we have done for many years is have a light schedule on extra work in August. Trimmings are usualy done by then or early in the month. No plantings going on usualy. So, the crews get Saturdays off, and an early day on Monday and when they work it out, usualy a little shorter day on Friday. This works well being that August is usualy the worst month with heat and humidity.
