    Ferris, great idea I have been thinking about that for a while. We need to know what is expected out of under CDL trucks. It seems you only find out you need something when you get a ticket. Keep me posted, I'm out of Foster, RI

    ...Also I'm selling an 03 Exmark Lazer Z HP 44" 17hp Hawi with Ultra Vac $3500

    Just a thought. Last year most of us started landscaping again on, or right around April 1st. Anybody else starting to think it might be later than that this year? Here's hoping it warms up soon, I'm getting pretty bored!

    I don't remember when I went out but it was early.

    Not looking the same this year.

    Did we give up on a meeting.

    everybody getting ready to start back up? I was curious if anybody else charges by the square foot to dethatch? Got a pretty big lawn to dethatch, and not sure if my normal $60/thousand sq feet is going to be too high. And one other question I've always been curious about. In the spring, do you guys stick with mowing 1X a week and just mow it short, or do you mow the lawns every 4-5 days when the grass is growing fast? Meeting with the accountant this afternoon. Time to see what this year's tax bill looks like!
