No incorrect. Spring Masters only aerate in the spring, about 1-2 months, not during the summer and fall. They have a lot of book clients to get done in the spring, so that's why they don't care if the grass is dormant, if their is snow or the ground is still frozen.

Grass is greening up good here, lake temps are still high so the daily temps here are going higher than forecasted, won't be long till we're cutting grass and landscaping, just got to get all the equipment ready, rain all week should help.

Looks like it will be a slow start, I don't count on cutting until
likely the second week of May by the look of things now....

Rain and warm temps will help....

Still trying to complete spring clean-ups, darn ground is frozen till
noon on most mornings it is not raining....

Saw ScumMasters in Stratford pushing them small Ryan aerators
around today... surprised they charge more then I do...

Yeah, the weather has been awful.
Come May phones will start ringing.
Not much customers thinking about grass.
My renewals have been slow to get back.
But they're starting to trickle in.
