I've got a son that is currently going to OSU-ATI in Wooster and is trying to find an internship with a local company. We are located in Stark county between Akron and Canton. He can do his internship with me but I'm steering him towards getting some outside experience away from dad. If anyone is looking for someone you can PM me or answer here. Thanks!

One more thing. While I was passing out flyers this morning, I made a trip by one of my customers and noticed that he had a few trees cut down and a few large branches cut off several other trees. Whom ever did this left the yard a mess with twigs and branches everywhere. My question is would it be ok to send him an estimate for a spring clean-up to remove the mess? (This is why I was wondering what is involved with a spring clean-up). Last year, all I could get out of this customer was just a basic weekly mowing service.
He has some areas that where at one time mulched and planted but he never did anything with them last year. How could I get him to let me do this for him?

Thanks,
BIGGIN
Your customer had a pro tree guy come in most of the time they charge extra to clean up. Go offer a clean up for them right away. Spring clean consist of clean out the beds extra leaves and weeding out the beds trimming any bushes or trees pruned.
Then you offer mulching, edging the beds ect.
MULCHING MATH 101
You figure out the feet by walking it off plus how deep your beds are (Come out away from house) Take that number multiply it by how deep the mulch will be ie(2 to 4 inches) and divide it by 27.
My software I use for everything is GROUNDSKEEPER PRO you can get a demo sent to you. I think they are one of our sponsors. Hope I helped out

Tom, did you get your trailer and mower today??? I called your house and Mrs. Grumpy said you went to Wally World, that’s the ruining of this, national you know...
