What month do you hit it hard to get new contracts?

Even though you work on it all the time, which month do you consider the "starting" month to get new bids and contracts for the next season?

I asked my insurance carrier and he said he thought most of his clients start in August.

I think this is a great question. We need two polls though one for you seasonal folks. Another for Bohilla, Prez,and myself and other guys that work year around. I think Aug and Sept and then again in Feb. March for the tear round guys.

I am curious what others say... better yet what do your records show? What month do yo have the most new signed contracts? Great thread, Thx

March or April here for new squirts or mows.
Mows dry up after May. You can pick up some squirts getting toward fall though.
