Its just been ridiculously cold, soon as it gets real nice out I'm sure the calls will pile up. I was hoping to get cutting next week too, blah snow.

mulch is one thing mowing is another. I am talking about this year its to early now we all will be lucky if we are mowing by middle of april with the temps we have. Soil has to be around 50 to 55 degrees.

Ya I will see how it looks tommrow I know alot of guys seeding already it will come up when the weather warms up. I am going to lay down my mulch first thing that way give time for snow to melt. Then going to see how it looks possibly fix a few lawns with topsoil and seed them. All depends on the weather.

Might have been one of the managers; me and another guy are starting to edge an HOA over there, but I haven't been over there in a truck in a couple weeks and most everybody else is in Mars working on a commercial install.
