    This time of year, I am cutting all of my accounts every other week, and blowing the leaves off the lawn every week. So, for those of you in the North Jersey area, what are you doing?

    yeah, not much grass to cut in CT now. Probably this week will be the laast official cut and then leaves until the end of november. What are you other CT guys planning???

    We have been cutting all customer every week. The way we do it is to just cut the lawn and blow the leaves into bedding areas and/ or inconspicious areas of the property. Were basically storing the leaves on there property until the cleanups begin November 1st. The blowing actually takes less time than weedwacking which we barely do this time of season, at least not everyweek. Once cleanups begin Nov 1st , We make 3 visits. 2 before thanksgiving and one final appearance after thanksgiving. We like to be done by december 10th especially when the leaves are freezing to the ground.

    yeah, that sounds about right for here also. isint it nice to have almost no weekwackign this time of year, you can really just skip it and do it everyother week, which opens up extra time with the blower for the leaves, and you really dont end up spending any more time at each property than you have for the entire season.
