Glad I'm not the only one feeling a slow spring. Calls are just starting to come in for new jobs, but no maintenance calls. Tree jobs and construction work is starting to line up, but I was really hoping to expand the mowing route, so I could get away from it, and focus on all the high paying jobs.

Oh well, still looking at least as good as last year, which wasn't bad.

Like every year I will extend the offer to all....you can dump leaves, woodchips, wood chunks,topsoil/dirt at my place. Just no trash in it please. I'm 15 minutes from 96 and 23 crossroads and 15 minutes south of flint. Can have a machine to help unload logs/debris from trailers.

In a week I will have a full stock of all colored mulches (no gold) hardwood (top of the line stuff) compost, topsoil, bolders, cut limestone steps, natural limestone steps, natural granite steps, cobble stone, and a good supply of seed, silt fence, straw blankets, ferts and a bunch of other junk. I'm not a supply yard this is just my stock that I don't mind selling to lawnsite friends. (Delivery available on everything)

That's awfully kind! Where are you located? In case I'm ever working out your way.
