    When you mow a lawn in a neighborhood what side of street do you park on? Do you park in front of lawn your cutting or across the street?

    Try to be in front of the house that we mow.

    Other side or a house down. Makes edgeing and blowing curb a lot quicker with out truck in the way.

    Wherever I can fit. Never in a customers driveway.

    I have been parking across the street with the flow of light traffic on neighborhood street. Some handy man guy drove by and parked and gave me a nasty look. He parked and got out of truck and told me I should not be parked there because he is working on house. Are you kidding me buddy. I have been parking in same spot since 2006 and I am only parked there for the max 20min. Trashy looking guy in beat up truck as the nerve to tell me that. I was there first. He found a spot behind me on other side of driveway. Plenty of parking

    Where ever there is room. I try to park as close to the property I'm working on. Bad parking can add 10 minutes to a yard for me.

    Wherever I can, but never in front of the customers house. I want to clean the street properly, and dont want to blow grass on my vehicles.

    I have 1 lawn I park in the customers driveway, but she has a old farm property with a huge driveway and turnaround area.

    It depends on the place I'm servicing. Most are in the front of the property and they don't have curbs or sidewalks to cut in when trimming. Just blow off the area that needs cleaned up and done.

    I try and park directly across the street if possible. I find that works best for me.

    Across street or one house up/ down if same side. Try not to block driveways or mailboxes.
