Oh okay. MMC has been doing cleanups for a couple weeks on and off. No mulch yet, just cutting grasses and cleaning out beds and that type of thing. Can't wait to start mowing!

They have 1 4 man crew that just does all-day HOA and assisted-living communities, plus 2 other crews for smaller HOA and commercial accounts, plus maybe 2-3 landscape crews that take care of everything from mulching, installs, and excavation/soil work.

I hope I'm not giving away too much info about their operation, but anybody could figure that much out if they watched them enough. Numbers I can't do, and truck/equipment/shop info is iffy, maybe in a phone call or face to face if anybody's interested. But not online really. Don't want to overstep my bounds.

Thanks. Same here, not many spring clean ups. Most of my yards are in newer developments, not many mature trees. There just is not anything there to clean up. I will go out in a couple weeks and edge all sidewalks, pick up any debris, and give a quick mow over before the season actually kicks in. I just bill them for a regular mowing.

Well that works for you guys!

Have quite a few clean ups (should be mostly branches and some leaves and dead plant material) that will probably take a good week or two with an hour to 3 or 4 hours being spent at each place.
