    When estimating a lawn for a yearly rate, how many cuts do you figure on avg. I'm thinking around 20 in Arkansas. Thought's anyone? Maybe more like 28, figuring 7 mo. Usually so dry July & Aug. you miss some cuts.

    i base my yearly cut on 30 cuts, here in bama the season is about 7 and 1/2 months @ 4 cuts per month..even if months have 5 weeks in them because i may skip a cut every now and then if it is dry, so it evens out in the long run
