I hear ya man, going to be a while before we're mowing every week but try to enjoy the time off! I'm going to push some things on some customers to see if they want any work done, some might actually go for it which is nice.

Good luck on the Dunkin' Donuts man... didn't realize you were doing one of them already. How is doing work for those big corporations?

So far its been alright! The contact lady is really nice and asked me today if I would be interested in another one. The one in shaler is every other week and this one probably would be too. They pay pretty decently and I am going to try to get plowing/salting at both locations!

Basically just pulled weeds, edged a little, mulched and even did a little grass seed.

The homeowners had already "done" the front so they didn't really want to have that done although I would have spend the extra $200-300 to finish it out. It wasn't edged, lumpy and that crappy bagged mulch from Home Depot, oh well!

Thanks tailboard... the side of the house there was a ton of Thistle but the weeds that I ended up putting grass seed down on I'm actually not sure what that was (not well versed in the weeds category). Kinda hard to tell where I did the grass seed as it's covered with mushroom manure but it's the part down below.
