When do you guys start doing spring clean-ups, Power raking, fertilizing, etc. ?

Started Fertilizing last week, and clean-ups last week as well. Will start mowing within two weeks hopefully. I am a little north of Detroit and a little south of Flint. It will vary depending on where you are.

Started mowing April 16th last year- seem to be a little cooler this year- I will start after I get back from my week in sunny Florida- the 19th.

ya i think you are more realistic around the 19th. Although i would love it to be this week. I still need more jobs to pay for everything, it is good because it gives me time. Good luck this year.

Wow, I got season started since the end of February, fertilizing in 1st week of March, hedge, mulch, and cleanup, now in full swing mowing, etc. Florida is in the zone now also those allergy-causing oaktrees' pollen that comes along...oh, well

I was figuring mid-April god willing but it has been cool up here but the snow has been gone for a month now up here just about. It is supposed to be fairly warm, 50s all week and weekend may sneak into the 60s. I remember 2 years ago when it was in the high 80s the first week of April mowing with my buddy from high school and got sun burned in April, never had that happen to me before. But I would say mid-April hopefully to start mowing, maybe April 20th or so at the latest. Lets just hope it dont snow next week! :rolleyes:

I planned on starting the 12th of April, but more realistic is the 19th or 20th. I'll start cleanups and extra work next week. Not a lot of cleanups to do, hopefully some aerations.

We also start mowing about the third week of April, give or take, each year. And spring clean-up about the first week.

Hopefully we wont see snow in April like last year it pushed our start of the mowing season back a couple of weeks. How early do you fella's start doing aerations

most of the snow is gone, still have 2-6"s in the woods. we may start the later part of april.
