    Guys with crews - do you get as much done on certain days or let the guys mow a little longer at nites so they are finished early Friday?

    OR do you hire an extra guy to help speed the process along?

    Currently all our commercial accounts are done on Mon, Tues, & finish Wed usually by noon. Then we start on residentail accts and with all our guys we can cruise all day thursday and finish up Friday by noon to 2 p.m. b/t on extras that may have come up.

    Most yards are done the same time each week, but once in a while we'll do that yard, say weds at 5:00 instead of thurs at 9.

    Just curious!

    boss doesnt care when we finish as long as we do Ive been lobbying for a 4 day mowing w/k such as 4 10s hr days or whatever to have a cushin for rain or so we can have a 3 day w/e on holidays ect. There's nothing more aggravating than working on a monday when its the 4th of July or memorial day.
    anyhow we have such a full schedual mon-fri with enough mowing til fri afternoon he has no problem if we finish earlier.
