Here in Alabama we usually have work right on through the winter. The last part of Jan. and really all of february are pretty slack months because all the leaves have fallen and the grass ain't growing. There are plenty of people that call wanting one time clean-ups to fill in the voids though. Had several of them last year, probably won't do any this year cause you always get burnt, well I did anyway. Theres always something to do, I think I'll catch up on my movie rentals while the checks keep coming in, maybe I'll go camping or something fun for a change. Man I love the South.

Powerreel,
I'm in Eastern Washington in a tiny town called Chelan. You might have heard of it. My season is pretty much over. I got a couple of leaf cleanup jobs to do then I'm set for skiing this winter.:)

Maybe half my lawns will get last cut the week of the 28th, the rest the following week, then its dedicated leaf cleanup with a final mow and mulch the week of thanxgiving barring any snowstorms. After that its plow snow, home projects, etc til March when it starts all over again.

Im in Southern new england, Id keep mowing but by the end of the month, with time change it gets dark around 5, lawns are frosted til 10 or later then they are wet and muddy so its not worth making a mess just so I can mulch up a foot of leaves.

Here in SE. Arkansas it's pretty much over. Not because the grass stops growing, but because people don't seen to worry about their lawns as much. Time to let the dogs out and go Squrriel hunting.

Mine is slowing down which is very unusual for Memphis. No rain, it has rained 2 times since August. Fescue is starting to grow again, but we went from 90's last thurs. to 40's on fri. and 2 frosts. Really put a stop to the bermuda and zoysia. Although the temps have gone back into the 70's which is normal, so maybe things will continue thru November as usual.

Last year I had a good october. This year the cold weather has hit early in sc. It has been very dry the past 3 weeks. So things have slowed down considerbly. This year has been nerve racking. Not consistant at all. With the drought and then the rain and now back to the drought. Still doing some yards. Leaf season will start first of november and end like homers. Around Jan 15. The I hibernate until spring. Right now its frosty outside

My season will be over mid november but contracts are up Oct31. I will mow as late as the weather allows but I don't have to. Got some stuff to clean up but weather has not been a factor....yet.
