clean ups..who's almost done?

I have about a solid weeks worth and then we'll go back around until it snows or until there is nothing left to do.

4 more for me to do. probably about 2 days worth of work.

The calls have almost stopped coming for cleanups. I'm pricin very high now due to the fact that a) i don't want to work any more and b) the leaves have been sitting/soaking/getting stuck in for 4+ weeks now.

Ha, I'm still mowing yards. This grass just won't stop growing. But then again, I'm not complaining:-D Just more work = more earnings. Just picked up a nice mulch job today as well from a dormant customer from this summer. Good to hera from the guy, he used to be Metallica's sound engineer.

90% of them are on every other week basis, 8% everyweek, and about 2% are every 3rd week. (weeds)

between the rain, and the snow that comes down just enough to make everything on the grass sloppy..........I think I might make it in time for Thanksgiving.

although I did finally learn enough this year to charge people more for having to deal with wet leaves, raking instead of using my blower/vac, and to charge $1/bag to cover that expense.

We have about one and half weeks of cleanups, and about one week of christmas decorations. Then we will be done until the snow comes. If no snow soon we will probably go back to all contracts and do light cleanups just mow and blow beds out and stuff. Then start putting equipment away and servicing stuff.

Still have quite a few to do here and the leaves are still falling. We've still been doing quite a bit of mowing as we just got our first good frost this morning.
