    I live in MA and usually start the last week of March or full throttle by April 1. How bout the rest of the New Englanders here? Of course my big advertising push with flyers starts March 1. Any thoughts?

    I usually start around the same on the Cape depends on the weather end of march or first of April then lawn mowing toward the middle to end of April. Spring leaf clean ups will start early this year if this weather holds out!

    We are working 3-4 days a week at our properties now for snow plowing, sanding and ice maintenance (walkways) We dont start summer maintenance till the snows gone then we start with weeding the beds and spreading tons of mulch. But the snow is unpredictable so starting time is a ?????????????????????????

    I live on the cape, and we never shut down. We do cleanups, brush mowing and pruning of trees. Great winter for work so far, 1 or 2 days here last week or 2 cold, but not bad for winter.We will be starting spring cleanups next week, mowing whenever the grass starts growing.
