I work every week year round. Only mow every other week this time of year, but I have a few high end commercial that I have to go and blow or pick up leaves, just tidy up each week. I do all commericals one week, and residentials the other this time of year. We still only work 4 days this time of year though.

Well this week I'm going around and getting all my places cleaned up (Hedges/leaves mainly) and ready for the Holidays. I'm really trying to push mulch and trimming up trees, as those are good money makers on the side. But man a lot of my customers aren't getting back to me this year with any of it. Guess everyone's cutting back. I did see gas at $1.95 today. Don't think I have seen it that low since I started driving.

The residential market has been very, very tight this year. I have been in business since 95, and I have never seen people so careful with money. It is either going to get better, or get much worse, then get better. Just have to make due for now.
