Smile Spring Clean-up Starting For Me

For me being New in the Lawn Service it's starting to "Rock&Roll".
It's great to get these jobs by word of mouth. And getting full time customers from the clean-ups say's I'm doing it right !! It makes you feel good about what you're doing. Has anyone else experienced this??

For me just getting out is tough right now...I'm limited to time cause of a full time job I had to take last year..I trusted my brother last year to keep my business going...But he had more important thing to do...( dream about money).. I was totally out of the lawn business 3 weeks after I let him take over...So now I'm starting fresh with new customers in a new area..

I know this has nothing to do with Spring clean-ups but I just had to get it off my shoulders..

I feel for all that have the cold elements to deal with. We had a cold winter for Fla. standards though but not the snow.... Hey chad, been to the Tampa area a few times, nice area. I'm like you with a full time job to deal with. Only thing I can suggest is do Quality work and you'll get calls!! Thanks all for the replies...

I'll be starting in about a month and a half, wait a minute I can't believe that I am responding to a Clean-Up post in February.


I have to go take my Walker for a spin around the driveway.

Cleanups underway here in Va Beach. Should finish up with them by months end and at the same time have all the fertilizing done.
Actually putting in mulch now andwill do a renovation end of month.
The climate here matches pretty close to that in North Carolina and northwest South Carolina. Big Stom this weekend and lots of snow nearby, but long range forecast models call for 50s and 60s by next weekend. It won;t be long folks.. Hang in there.
