It's never to late, I still have people calling for mowing quotes. There are low ballers dropping like flies, because of the heat now. I gained most of my customers last year in the middle of the season.

Also if anyone receives a call from a couple on deer run in Ada. They are extreme pain in the asses, I had them last year and they are a scheduling horror. They have a mower and like to mow it sometimes and then the next week they call you and want it done that day.

Hey Power,
I get my mulch mostly from Buy Sell Landscaping, They are located on Knapp and the Beltline. That's only in if im in the area or passing them to go to the job. I usually look at what is closest to the job site and go from there. I know your on the south side of town you may want to try Landscape Impressions on 68th in between patterson and east paris, I believe.

Hi I'm from Kentwood MI.
Just started started my 1 man op Lawn mowing & residential snow removal service 1 month ago with a Allis Chalmers garden tractor with a 42" deck, a $69 trimmer, a 6.5ft x 8ft trailer and a 45" snow blower.
I now have 7 acct's and I just updated my equipment to a Bradely 48" walk-behind, a Echo 230 trimmer and a Craftsman 21" push mower.
Hopefully by next month I will be getting a 60" ZTR and a Edger.

I have been working in the rain, heat and humidity. It has been fun to say the least.
