How's your year starting out?

Starting this thread just to change things up a bit.

I was wondering how everyone's mow season has started out. good. bad. the same. whatever.

Personally I have gained 32 more clients. Dropped several of my lower value clients and now averaging $42.73 a cut.

About to upgrade to a larger riding mower might go to 60" haven't decided what mower yet.

Mowing is pretty good…averaging $96.33 a cut.

Upgraded from a 36" Scag Walk Behind to a 36" Wright Stander Rapid Height and saw a huge increase in efficiency on the smaller properties.

Installed 10 yards of mulch last week, have 5 this coming week and 15 the week after that.

Been a slow start...heck we had 2" of snow a week ago... everyone in my area is behind... lawns are going to need mowing by the end of this week and no one is ready because we're all still on spring cleanup.

Likewise here in MI. Still wrapping up Cleanups this week and checking the lawns 50/50. Will be starting our first full run next week probably. Tons of rain this week too!
