The cool season grass grows while the warm season grass goes dormant. We overseed are warm season grass with cool season grass. But around here the leaves dont start falling till around thanksgiving and all the leaves are down by around christmas time so by janurary we finally get all the leaves up and then in feburary its full stream ahead we start fertilizing and spraying weeds and getting ready the spring season are winter here is warm are lows get down in the low 30 sometimes the 20 but then the highs are around 50 -60 so there is always something we can find to do. are lawn mowing does cut back like are weekly jobs go to biweekly and biweekly goes to every 3 weeks. ALso this year i have gotten involved with some companies that take care of bank owed homes and that is turing out be some work. The company calls us and gives us 13-30 houses to go and mow/weedeat and in vegas the yards are very small most yards are desert landscaping so we weedeat the weeds and blow and go to the next yard. And we been doing this about every 2 weeks. On steve's post he said maybe do some home repair but becareful about that, some things require having a contractors lics and business lic to do that. In nevada if you get a business lic for lawn maintenace thats all you can do, just mow yards. If you trim trees you have to have a tree trimming lic on top of the lawn maint lic. and if you fix sprinklers, & valves you have to have a handy man lic on top of the tree trimming lic and the lawn maintenace lic. That also goes for dog pop cleanup, powerwashing, hanging christmas lights, & doing anything but lawn mowing requires a lic for each item and sometimes the lic cost are more than what you might make doing that item. But i would try to do leaf raking I charge like i am mowing the yard the customer gets the same lot of time as if i was mowing the yard but i blow the leaves into the grass and pick up with my mowers. and i get all the leaves picked up by around janurany and then able to relax a bit and work on the weekends mowing the cool season grass or doing the stuff i was to busy to get to during the summer months and still make about 2000.00 a month.
Dido for us in AZ. But doesnt get as cool as that even for us. Lucky if we even get a frost.
