I totally agree. Grass is still dormant and not much rain in the forecast.

We usually shoot for 2 weeks of clean ups and two weeks of cutting on your typical year. Time will tell if this will happen

Should of elaborated more haha. No way we'll be cutting then, meant more along the lines of the temperatures staying steady and out doing clean-ups, but my first ones are scheduled for this week. My schedule is currently planned for the first week of May, hopefully. Last week of April is a long shot. With these temperatures, especially today, grass is going to be dormant for a while. Michigan weather is just dragging this year.
