Default Input On Potential Weekly Schedule

My goal is to have Monday, Wednesday, and Friday as days for mowing, with Tuesday and Thursday being used for other jobs. Also considering Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for Mowing and leaving Monday and Tuesday for other jobs. I will also be explaining to my customers if it rains we can make arrangements to perform the job the next day if weather permits, but if not we will perform the service the following week. I'm open to any advice on if this schedule would work or if you would recommend a different type of schedule. I live in the Mid West so our weather is pretty strange at times, so that's why I'm sort of having a hard time planning this out and I'm looking for advice/suggestions.

I think it is good you are leaving room for other jobs and catching up after it rains. Try it out and see how it goes.

Thanks for the input Steve. We wanted to make sure we have at least 2 days for other jobs and to account for rain.

When possible, which isn't very often in the season, I like Fridays off if I can. Having Friday a light day, one can usually catch up on anything if need be. If it's a weekly lawn, the following week I get them back on the regular schedule. If you don't do that your schedule will always be lop sided.

FO Time - LOL! That's hilarious if that stands for what I think it does. We are considering Monday for other jobs, and Friday and then having Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for mowing, since most people have things they do on Friday to prepare for the weekend, etc.
