Even though the grass is all exposed now, getting on it with equipment will just ruin it, I'd say wait till a week of nice weather after this snow were supposed to get on Wednesday.

I'd start passing them out now if I were you. I started my advertising for next week. And will be doing flyers then. Once the 60 degree temps start hitting in March, people are starting to think about their lawns.

Wow. Thats a lot of advertising (flyers+hangers). Thats great! You can never advertise too much.

I just have a yellow page ad, local paper ad (the free ones delivered to every house, works great!) and about 1000 or so flyers delivered into newspaper boxes.

Usually starts the second or third week of April. Seems like forever. Can't wait.

I'd say advertise now or in the next week or so. Our lawn contracts start May 1st, and I leave it to the discretion of the customer if they'd like us to start mowing earlier. Now is the time to focus on spring cleanups or other yard work. We're all excited for spring, but we are still chasing snow showers UGGHHH!!
