Been picking away at spring cleanups and edging, but we're gonna be behind here if we can't get a full week of work in this coming week.

Western PA Landscapers!

Hopefully everyone came out of that storm ok! You would think customers would understand being a bit behind normal schedule with the amount of accumulation we received. We had 8 inches at our shop.

All of my properties except one called and complained even though everything was done twice and we had machines on some sites....I guess they expected everything done right at 7am after the snow stopped.

I washed my snowblower the other day when it was 70 degrees.

The truck is clean, the mowers, and blowers, and such have all been started, and test-run to avoid surprises, and I bought a can of wasp/hornet spray today so that I'm ready for those bastages when the time comes! LOL!

Made a list of supplies and parts I wanted to replace, or knew I would need to replace, and got everything at 20% off with Penn Hills Rental pre-season sale.
I may never run out of mix oil again! LOL Makes sense to stock up when it's priced lower.

I had my first call for an estimate for weekly service today. I'm ready to get started!

I wish I would have been more physically active over the winter though.
The first week is going to kick my a$$!
