It did snow twice this year but usually we don't get any at all. At the moment it's flooded out, but that should be dry in a day or two.

My website is dansmowing.co.nz. There are some photos there, do need more though but can be a effort to take before and after photos. Christchurch is a city of 400,000 and I can go right around it but usually stick to a few areas or one side of town during the same day.
I like the small lawns!

Hey danmow13, I'm from Wanganui NZ! Now running my own lawncare business in the States. Good to see another Kiwi on Lawnsite!
