No really! My cleanups were done a month ago.

Spring clean-ups started for me the last week in March. Almost done now and just started cutting the first lawns this week. Finally.

I finished clean ups last week, and this thursday im starting weekly mowings. the grass is growing like crazy and i have a lot of mulch to spread. its great to be back to work.

Clean ups will be starting here in one week. I know it is 90 degrees out today, and that is great, but the yard just aren't ready to be thatched and arerated yet. Its been too wet and too cold in the last month, not to mention late season snow(13 inches).

Im starting most tomorrow, just the high ground accounts. I think we may get a bonus week of cutting in (next week) this year.

I envy the rest of you who are done and mowing.

We should be done this week. I also have some mowing scheduled. Not all lawns, but some are growing like crazy. Mike

We start ours March 1st-31st. But we still are doing some clean ups on new accounts (late birds).

We actually cut a lawn today, it didn't need it but the elderly customer said to do it anyway said he might not live another 2 weeks. I think he was joking but he is 84.

Half done and the phone is ringing every day. Droped 6 accounts last year and added 12 new ones so far this year. People are over whealmed when they look at the mess in their yards. Makes them want to open their wallets.

We did all of our Spring Clean- ups last month. Around here Spring goes by pretty fast. Give it another week and we'll jump right into Summer. We are already back on normal schedule for our clients. :)

Nope, sorry, still snow on the ground... (at least its just patches now) I hear they got over a foot 180miles south of us! Poor boys, then again, They're calling for snow overnight in my neck of the woods! I better go knock on my jeeps woodgrain!

Can't get the clean ups out of the way with all the mowing I have to do!
