Actually I think the 2 companies I saw driving around the most before the last snow were Greenlawn & Weedman. They both looked like they were working, but I could be only 1/2 right about that.

Spring Masters does seem to start early but at least they pace themselves and are able to continue aerating through the spring, summer, and fall. Good on them!

Aerations are tough to book and keep.
I lost a few last year that I had booked.

To bad I bought a piece of rubber and built one today. It was a pain in the ass. A lot more complex than I thought. Brake controller would be nice but I gotta wait cuz I think my truck wiring has issues. Thanks though.
