Washington State

Is anyone in Washington State? Still some snow on the ground unless your on the west coast, saw some lawns already being mowed! I am still waiting for some clean up calls and then the lawn season to start up as there is still some snow.

I work in Whatcom and Skagit counties. I've been mowing for a couple weeks now. It's just so rainy... Dusty do you mow in the rain? I'm new and I'm not sure if I should. I didn't have any clients until the "dry season" last summer. I mowed today in the rain, it's just soooo slow. It doesn't seem like a good idea, but at the same point I have clients whose lawns are already too long and I don't want to wait for them to get longer. I also don't work out in Lynden or Ferndale. I see that you do, I have had people call me from out in that area, do you have some contact info?

Charlie

Been mowing in Jefferson County for a few weeks now also. As for mowing in the rain, its Washington and you gotta take what you get. If the blades aint turning, then you aint earning.

Wow this is an old thread, my bad

Well its good you are still around Charlie. I'm actually working on staying my business. I just purchased a mower and a trailer. As a landscaper out here in the PNW and what do I need to look forward to and what are the average prices? It's great to know you're still thriving out here.
