How do lawn services work in rainy areas(NW USA ,etc)?
 
I had to cancel my lawn service because the guy never came out.

He hung up the phone on me when I cancelled.

He had his chance and should have mowed despite the rainy conditions.

It rained three days in a row and there is a chance of rain on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday.

I found someone else who is supposed too mow today.

If it rain's all the time then some of these places probably go out of business( I live in SE Michigan).

Yeah but the original guy only mow's on the weekdays and if it only rained on the weekdays then he would never catch up

Aiyah...that is bad luck. But Grandfather say, "It never rain everyday."

Commercial mowers with the bigger balloon tires can mow easily in the rain. If it's too wet eventually they'll start to tear up the lawn. I cut mine yesterday with my regular push mower and now have some great tire tracks where the ground was wet.

I always thought you didn't mow when it's raining (other than muddy conditions) because the grass didn't cut as well as when dry.

The Washington DC area was +20 inches of rain over the average of 60 inches last year.

All the grass got cut

Wet grass will stick together in clumps and potentially clog up the deck so mower will likely miss some spots and leave a wonderful mess behind.

Summer time in the Pacific Northwest, one the rainiest places in the U.S., is generally pretty dry, so lawns get mowed the same as everywhere else.

Austin Texas got more than Seattle last year. In fact, it was raining last night and I still got my ass out there this morning and did it myself. Yeah, wet grass, but I mulch it, so no biggie.

South Florida summer thunderstorms hit in the afternoon, almost every day. They come in the morning.
