I should have the equipment out & going this week if all goes well. I've been getting calls for landscape maintenance since last week. Dad asked if he could try his hand at the mowing again after taking a break from it for 5 years now. Funny how things work out. I worked for him for many many years & now the tables have turned.

I've had only a few calls in the last week, picked up only 1 new account. Have only sent out about 2,000 fliers/doorhangers though.

JM with the 25K you sent out (they looked amazing by the way) I figured you would have all sorts of calls.

Wright: Did you send 25k all at once? We send our over a three week period hoping to hit some nice days. At the end not sure if it really makes a difference.

I am glad we have got the rain... Set at the legends during the snow storm..all 8 feet we were supposed to get ... And never got..... But we were called to be there and waiting.... What happened to a few week ago.... 70's sunny.... I have calls for weed spraying.... But between my normal day job and the rain... I can't do it...... And the grass is coming up quick...... I would say in the next 2 weeks with sunny days and nice temps we will all be busy again............. I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...............


And on a different note....Anybody needing stuff.... For yards, lots etc.... Check out The New Grass pad in Bonner Springs.... Nice people, Great store..... Call and ask for Billy at 913-422-4433 or his sell at 816-806-0934 or email at billygrasspad@sbcglobal.net
Tell Him that Ameslandscaping sent you....... Thanks
