    what time do you all start in the morning? i have started at 7:00 before and one time 6:30. the grass is pretty wet but it still cuts. just wondering if you all had a set time or just when you felt it was time to cut grass.

    It all depends on where I am cutting. If I am going to start at a residential area I do not start before 0800 but if it is a commercial property then anything is fair game as long as they are closed.

    we meet @ 7:30 to load up and by the time we get gas/mix/diesel we are usually cutting between 8:15 and 8:30

    Later times on weekends, since we are 95% residental

    what you wront makes no sense. One says you work for 1 hour the other says you work for 3.5 hrs.

    How do you get your lawns done working 3 hour days?
