If you haven't already started to mow this year, when do you plan on starting. Here in Michigan I plan on starting sometime in April depending on if the weather will cooperate with me this year.

Getting ready on st patty's day weather permitting. Already have about 120 clean-ups lined up. God I hope it's nice out tired of sitting around the house. I ran out of winter projects.

This winter has been a bit tougher than the last few.
Hope to cut just shy of May 1 - if we can get some good melting days in March to knock down these snowbanks!

Going to start scalping the winter rye grass late next week so the warm season grasses will take over... Thought the day would never come!

Have already done a couple of clean-ups. Will probly really get going next week if the snow will stay out of here! Wild weather around here, was 75 degrees Sunday, then about 2 inches of snow on the ground by midnight the same day!!!

That's being optimistic don't you know were in Michigan...?
We have (four seasons) spring, summer, winter, followed by more winter
When it hits 50 degree's, I'll consider going out doing spring clean-ups...
May is the official start up time, who cares what the calendar says lol...

Phone is just starting to ring here.Last year I starved till April, I think this year will be an early rush. Getting 1 or 2 a day now plus what is scheduled year around. Sure feels good to be mowing again. Probably get over that feeling pretty quick when the heat gets here.Time to quit making withdrawals and start depositing again.Hope everyone has a good year.
