Started last week of Feb here and everybody will be going full throttle by last week of March. We didn't have but maybe 1 month of really cold weather here. Weeds are in full force!!

Start typically when I mow the first lawn. :dizzy:

OK OK, I start right around mid April. Im guessing Ill be starting early this year.

Typically May 1 but if the weather keeps this warmer than normal no-snow trend, could be by 3rd week of April.

In 3-4 wks.
depending on the forecast, I should start like I mentioned above.
it is supposed to get 13* degrees on Wednesday so I plan as using that as "mower maintenance day", wax the mowers and change the oil.

I usually plan for aroung may 1st. I hope for sooner this year to get a nice jump start to the season. I do start my spring leaf cleanups as soon as its dry enough. Mid april.

The weather is plenty worm to start early this year but we are so far behind in rain fall I don't feel it will come on strong till the April showers hit. I could mow several yards in 2 weeks with the predicted worm forecast for the week coming.

Is the "worm" weather when you know it's time to start because the worms are visible?

Last week of March. Headed home from Fl the 21st.

Normally we start mowing the last week in april. Looks like we might be starting a week earlier this season.

Most crews around here have started due to a mild winter. I am starting tomorrow.

Late May I start cutting. Summer comes late here in the mountains. I'll still be skiing for the next 6 weeks.
