    We usually leave at 8:00, mowing around 8:10. Everyone comes in around 7:45 checks their equipment, gets schedules, & loads. Often times there is a lot of dew on the ground, which is the reason for starting a little later.

    I would say usually around 9 am or so...gives customers a little extra time to sleep!

    Start at 9 am go to dennys and eat a good breakfast, drink 3 cups of coffee , get to first job by 11 or so , break for lunch at 12 , realize its too nice of a day to work , grab the fishing rod enjoy the sunshine . And then.................................the alarm goes off at 6 30 am , and the dream is over.
