    Just wondering, how many of your customers are snowbirds? How many come to FL in the winter and if so what towns? Might be a way to do a little marketing here.

    I have 9 customers that go to florida around october and november they all get fall clean ups off me and i love it cause when i fall a little behind in the fall i can bump them and my phone is'nt ringing off the wall why are'nt my leaves cleaned up?


    I live in northeast ohio by pymatuning lake with lots of older snow birds up here and lots of seasonal people most of them tell me they stay in those retirement developments down there and i guess the owners sub out the work to lawn contractors down there. i do have 1 guy who said his lawn care guy is robbing him (cost to much) but hes a good worker and he likes him so he says thats a hard thing to give up he thinks alot of people down there are lazy its always been that way down south and i kind of agree with him (not saying any of you guys are !!!!) when i was in carolina i had people calling me left and right asking me if i found a job ? when i did i asked the superintendent whats up with that he said cause your a yankee they are usually hard workers !!!!
