The last two weeks we have had temps in the 70's here and last week it rained for like 3 days. This week phone is ringing off the hook. We cut 47 properties since monday, did 2 landscape cleanups, an irrigation repair, 1 new residental contract, and several calls for estimates. We have 26 to cut tomorrow and one landscape cleanup. Normally we dont start like this till the last week of February. Not complaining.:dancing: Normally I sit on the couch from jan 1st till late feb while my 2 guys are doing 15-18 hours a week. No break this year. We been working at least 40hrs a week since new years. We had 3 landscape installs in January (beds, irrigation, sod, and lighting on one)
Gonna be a long summer. Looks like I may have to start a 3rd maintenace crew this year.

While it is still freezing up here, I probably could go out and get some leaf clean-ups done. It is definately a mild winter up here!!

Though I am pretty jealous of your 70 degree temps!!!!!

We have some St. Augustine yards that we never stopped cutting. Crazy winter for sure, fruit trees and tons of plants are blooming like crazy... pollen everywhere.
People have started calling wanting installs and spring cleanups done, but I've seen it snow here in March so you never know.

I'm with you guys...sick of sitting around. You can only watch so much TV. Winter has been very mild here too, 1 snow storm all year. Maybe 2 weeks that were cold. Weather has been sunny and between 38-55 just about everyday. We have had a little rain but not much. I will probably do commercial spring clean ups here soon if the weather stays nice. Good thing is mountains have good amount of snow, so water will not be an issue. I even considered putting som urea down on my lawn to see if it will pop.

Good luck dudes...

We're in real early Spring here. There's a little greening going on but it's not even time to put down pre-em yet.
