N.H. anyone?

my wife and i are contemplating moving to new hampshire in the next several years and i was wondering how business is there. all of my experience is dealing with southern turf and conditions. when does the mowing season start there? is plowing a regular source of income in the winter or is snowfall erratic? i would love to meet some people from that area who can give me the scoop...

I dont have all the answers but its not too bad up here.
Mowing starts in may and ends in oct. Fall and spring cleanup are busy.
Snowfall is a pain to judge i have a few friends that do it and they do contracts with avg 13 storms per year. I have a fulltime job and cut on my off days. Good luck

thanks for the reply. when we move, i was figuring on getting a full time job for 1-2 years to start my business over and then going full time as lco/plow guy. what kinds of turf are most prevalent in your area?
