I agree with outrunjason. I would love to be caught up mowing, but this rain will keep things growing instead of it all drying out further. Going to be a long busy weekend!

Yeah. I hate giving up my weekends. But gotta pay the bills. I did get to 6 yards yesterday during a 2 hour break. Just tried to hit some of weekly ones.

This rain is going to help keep things going but I do wish it hadn't rained quite as much. I visited a few lawns thismorning after the rain stopped and they are pretty soggy. I'm hoping maybe thisafternoon I can get a few in but I'm not too optimistic. On a bright note, I get an order of doorhangers in thisafternoon so i can start putting those out!

It's still coming down in buckets in the Burleson/Mansfield area. If I put my Z's on anything today I'm afraid I'll tear them up pretty bad. Yesterday my 21's were leaving ruts in the low spots.

Woody82986, Have you put put door hangars this late before? How are they working for you?

I never have tried them before. I didn't order too many. I figured I'd give it a try though. It's been my experience with other advertizing avenues that I have good luck picking up new clients this time of year. That's why I'm doing a small batch now... just to see what comes of it. If it works I might do more this time next year. If it doesn't work then now I know and I can concentrate on other things. Either way, I'm only out $150 and the time it takes to get them out in my spare time.

Good Luck with them, let us know how it works out. I just looked at your web site. You're covering a bunch of territory!

I don't really cover that much territory. Most of those places I have no lawns in. I used to have a one day route that took me on a big horseshoe around those areas that let me take it easy and keep track of new developments. I don't deal with that route anymore. I really should take a bunch of those areas out before I get a I should get rid of. I will make sure to post my findings on the doorhangers at this point in the season.

What have you found to be the best at getting leads? This time of year.
