We package ours with doing spring prep work, maintenance during the growing season, and then leaf removal during the winter months.

All of my commercial are on yearly contracts. They pay the same every month and this makes winter time one of my favorites.

I'm jealous of you Southern guys.

I'm just trying to finish jobs before the ground freezes, and I have to turn around and get geared up for snow removal. I pray every winter that we have at least two snow falls, and I would like to see 6-8 good plows.

I would love to have landscaping maintenance contracts all year round. I can only push for winter printings, and a few random leaves and such in the winter.

Majority of our commercial & residentials are 12 month contracts, during the fall we focus on leaves, 2nd seasonal mulching, hardscaping projects. Yes the southern States are blessed with a true 12 month income cycle, no snow is a big adavantage for us. I do have some church's who stop service in december, and start back up in March or April. I run some ZTR's all year long no rest.

We try to get landscape/irrigation installs in the winter to keep workers busy. Dont' anybody landscape up north in the winter?

When you have 2-3' of frost in the ground its a little tuff to dig
