I figured that those of you that boast about how much business you have that you would take the winters off.

I sometimes wish that I could take the winter off, but I am so looking forward to the coming snow season! I hope that we get some of the jobs we have been bidding on already.

since I just started, I don't do plowing, so I don't mow over the winter, instead I drive a truck hauling US mail. not a bad gig at @ $24/hr.

I offer services to my customers all year long. Makes it easy to keep in contact with them. I would be afraid if i didnt do snow plowing that who ever does the plowing may try to steal the lawn care work away. Plus the money is great plowing and you get time off and still get paid

Still got bills coming in...there is no off time really. We're in pursuit of snow contracts now. We'll do snow. Some remodeling. Looking at spacing a house again this year. I skipped last year due to other work.
