View Full Version : Fall clean ups yet?

10-24-2005, 06:33 PM
Anyone in the North East have any calls for fall clean ups yet? It's pretty idle here so far. Just bought a Little Wonder 10hp blower and wow what power! Hopefully I get to use it soon.

Yeah I hear you are supposed to get some of the white stuff. Same hear, it won't amount to anything but what a pita working in snowing blowing conditions.

I hate mulching leaves with 7 inches of snow on the ground.

I haven't started clean-ups yet at all. By the end of the week I will have to fire up the 8hp Little Wonder. Grass cutting is just about over (almost).

Grass cutting will end this Friday. Hope to start leaves sometime next week but many are still on the trees here. Might get some snow tomorrow.

We started here the around the 15th of the month. The lawns were looking somewhat shabby with the leaves coming down. I generally complete 4-5 clean-up's per customer for each Fall season. Thanksgiving is usually the end of clean-up's for me.....

Got all my regulars lined up and one phone call for a large one today but alot of trees are still green. Probably another 2 weeks before things really get going. Hopefully the snow will hold off until we finish.

Done a few clean-ups here in N.E. Ohio. I have a few Oaks and Elm's that are dropping quite a few leaves.

Just started picking up for a few last week. Compared to last year leaves are about 2 weeks later coming down. It's getting cold and rainy now so I expect to be alot busier with leaves this week if it ever dries out.
