I started last week. The rain just keeps delaying me, but thankfully the grass isnt growing so I can just focus on getting all my spring cleanups done.

Yea how bout getting new accounts any problems because im having a hell of a time trying to get more because this damn long winter weve had people arent thinking about the lawn guy yet. I put out like 5000 flyers adds and the only got 3 new clients and a few landscape jobs but damn i would have expected more by now , its making me nervous because its hard to keep my guys busy all week at the moment. :wall:confused::hammerhead:

I picked up about 20 new clients. And am working on 4 job estimates. Yesterday I came in and had 8 new messages. I am assuming that was because it is getting a little warmer and nicer with the exception of the rain.

Spring has not sprung in Vancouver, BC. We did our first cut at a 95 unit hoa last week,
this morning it snowed up there. There has been so much rain, the grass isn't growing and it's like walking on a dirty wet sponge.

go Canucks!

I can send you some of our (unfortunately) radioactive rain.
