Question for you guys....what is the going rate for garden tilling? I got a call today to do a 12x20 that has never been tilled before. I know I way underpriced it now after I think about it. I gave him a quote over the phone so I guess ill have to bite the costs and learn from this one. Thinking somewhere aroung 30 cents a square foot? More? Less?

I had customers tell me that their mulch smells like garbage. Metker has much better mulch and customers can tell by just the smell.

Well, knocking the spring cleanups out one after another. Still got quite a few more to go too. Hopefully with any luck be able to get them done by the first week of April.

Lucky dog. Here in Cleveland, it's been okay last few days, but we used it for maintenance.

Now we're gonna get some snow showers and be wet til Monday. So next week for cleanups for us....all of which means it'll rain for three straight weeks.

Can't wait to get out tho! Added a Scag Turf Tiger this year, and can't wait to bust it out on some lawns.

Well, it is nice to be out working. It actually won't be long and the mowers will be humming right along. Some yards will be cut next week if the weather will allow me to get out there.

All the highs are in the mid to low 30s for the next 4 days here then low 40s with rain for the next 6 after that. I don't see me doing much for another week.

I went out on tuesday and did some tree work with a friends company, felt like I was getting sick after sweating all day in the cold. I don't feel like starting the season sick.
