    when it rains and you cant get to some of your jobs, do you try to get them done during the week or do you just skip that week and come back the next?

    As soon as the rain stops and it dries a bit (depending on the amount of rain) you have to pick back up right where you left off. That's the only trouble with this kind of work, putting it off till tomorrow just makes the whole week off. Usually the growth rate of the grass dictates just how long it can go, usually 7 days is about the limit, there can be real trouble if the grass is really growing and you get put off 2 days! Can't fathom a whole week...

    unless it rains so much ,that lawn is flooded,and if you cut it with a ztr you leave mud ruts in it , thats another reason why i have a 36 inch walk behind ,its just not for small back yards gates ,its also for very wet lawns so i can stay on schedule

    I always have a list of extra work that needs to be done. Most of which can be done in the rain. Such as plantings, cleanings, weeding, mulch, etc.
