I need to run a week to 10 days of Core Aeration. Mowing is all but done here except for the lawns that had been irrigated. Can't believe how, 2nd year straight, mowing has gone to poop at the end of the season.

I don't do much leaf cleanup so that passes me by for the most part.

Final item will be to run last round fert only but am uncertain now if I will get that down as it has not even rained in my early Sept app yet.

I couldn't make it without leaf cleanup. How do you leave that out DA? I guess when I've been doing this for ten years or more it might seem boring, but this is actually my favorite time of year. I love cool and even cold weather, I like cleaning up leaves, and I always pick up new customers around now. In fact I've already picked up like 4 in the last two weeks. I had a huge banner made for my trailer last yr that says "Got Leaves"? and I get lots of calls from that. Gotta Love Fall 'Yall.

On another note, i've noticed is employees seem like there ready to be finished as well. My guys attitudes are allways borderline this time of the year, and they kindof want to pick and chose what they want to work on and days to work also. 2 more months to go, can't wait for that little break!
