A few new mowing accounts but running my tail off to get to lawn renovation and mulching jobs and bed creation/reconfigurations.

Still adding mowing accounts here. The spring rush for landscaping work has dried up for me though.

Right about the same as last year. Got a few new accounts. Mainly doing landscaping work this year. Although there seem to be a lot of tire kickers out there this year.
