Unless it's that rubber crap!
The 40 yards we layed today was in a sub enterances,gardens and a park so so it had to look good. I have 2 customers who I lay mulch for twice a year for! They have me do it right before Easter and right before their anniversary in July... Just because he's OCD about his landscape but I don't mind!

Hey all,

Great weather, huh? We had a week of clean-ups and mulch, and we've been sitting all week this week. Hoping to work Thurs-Sat to get some clean-ups out of the way. Got about 30 to do, luckily people are understanding of the weather. Then after that it's mow mow mow mulch mulch mulch.

Today is a coin toss- like Jason said, many will tear up and then youve gotta deal with that all season.. First ruts of the year tend to stick around for a while. I am so undecided....I want em done, but hate to have a pissed customer or a sh*ty looking lawn

Everyone sounds like they're sitting around waiting for the weather to clear up??????? I understanding waiting to mow, but aren't you guys doing clean-ups and mulch??

We've worked every day the past 2 weeks except that Saturday that rained all day, and the day it snowed/rained all day.

Definitely looking forward to warmer weather!

We are also heading out shortly, we have also been doing some small mulch jobs after we complete the clean-ups on the properties. I've seen guys laying mulch in March so I'm not worried. Good luck out there!

Im not taking any chances, im waiting it out and let things dry out a bit. I dont want ruts on my jobs, just to squeeze a couple cleanups in. Id rather do it right the first time then screw a job up just to make a buck.

I agree, no way am I putting a mower with a bagger loaded down on any lawn right now. I have plenty of things to be doing.
