Hey Jeff, didn't realize you were a landscaper as well as a plower, this is great setting up this thread. I've got lawn contracts starting May 1, I hope the snow is gone by then. Have you got lots of work lined up for the spring/summer? Thanks for setting this up, great networking tool.

Mike

Yep multi talented here. Just starting to think about spring, only given one commercial quote so far. Hopefully get flyer's out in a week and a half and then right through until may. Will be contacting my last years residential hopefully next week as we are in for some snow this week!

Cheers

Hey if anyone in Southern Ontario is looking to get rid of some accounts, residential or commercial, let me know cause I'm definitely lookin to get some new ones this season. I'll be out advertising this week hopefully, pounding the pavement dropping off flyers.

Now we're talkin guy's. Lets put away the plows and start cleanups.
It's good to see some familiar names here. We usually start to do cleanups the last week of march but this year I don't know might be the second week of april. Heck their callin for 5cm's for tuesday.........keeping my fingers crossed that doesn't happen

Hay, I was just looking at your website, south coast property maintenance, How in the world does this work, You service all of southern ontario??? btw, half of the links on the website dont work!!! Do you got satallite locations or are you a sub for south coast, I've never seen anyone set-up like this before other then the big dogs and I've also never heard of you, just wondering, btw, where are you located?

I took one plow off a week ago, and all the contracts end April 1, after that they can shovel. By the time this snow goes away, i'll be so far behind in construction that I won't even be thinking about cleanups. I sure hope the weather warms up for May 1st, or the grass crew is going to freeze thier a** off.
