Oh yeah, it's been busy...which is great, no complains. But you know what I mean, after awhile of working like this it gets on my nerves. Every year I'm ready to go come spring and then when it gets around this time I'm ready for the slow time.

It usually dries up this time of year and slows up a bit until leaf season, not this year!


Im hoping in 2 to 3 years Ill be able to cut back a little.

Yeah it hasn't slowed up any with all this rain. I think it will be full steam ahead right into leaf season

There's lots of things that contribute to this. Most would hire help. If you have your prices on par you should be able to hire.
