    Already started out on my lawn today. Nice and 40 degrees out, a little windy down here, but decent.

    Looking at a March 15th start if weather cooperates. I need about three weeks to complete cleanups and mulch before grass needs cutting.

    If you start too early,all the neighbors leaves trash your places again.But I have to admit I am getting antsy.We are doing some trim work we could not squeeze in before early winter last year.And there is always prep work on equipment
    sales,and marketing.Gotta take a few days and play before crazy time hits.

    I'm looking at starting on the 1st if weather co-ops. just need the nights to stay a little warmer. Time to get some payup coming in. Snow sure didn't this year. Haven't plowed since DEC. We usually start on an ave. around March 10-15.

    What do ya know it's heading into the first week of March here too.+

    Hoping to start on the first. Clean ups only. I'm not sure my supplier even has mulch in stock yet.

    I've got atleast a weeks worth of work to do on the trucks and equipment, getting stuff ready to move. I don't expect to do anything heavy until late March...

    I hate it when I put equipment up in the fall that needs little things done. Ideally when Spring comes around I like to start everything up and just go. Not the case this year. It seems like Leaf saeson makes somethings just fall apart.
