    No grass here yet. Our grass doesn't really start to grow until the Cherry Blossoms show white color in D.C.

    We do cleanups any day its mild, still have 6 or so big ones leftover from fall. If they get done before March 1st I still classify them as "fall" cleanups, after that then get renamed,.... yup you guessed it "spring" cleanups.

    I have a couple cleanups left to do and then its small jobs like gutters, cutting back winter growth on plants, and then getting everything ready for spring

    Was high 60's yesterday. Busy doing pre-emergence and cutting down last years growth on ornamental grasses, pruning tree's/shrubs, cleaning beds and reappling mulch. Grass should start to green in about 4 weeks or sooner if we keep these high temps. Trying to get all the supplies before the season starts and get all equipment tuned up and ready to go.

    We just starting getting some stuff together for spring but untill its safe to take the sanders off the trucks we cant really get much done.Got a chance for ice tonight and maybe some more next week so it will be a little while yet before we really get into clean ups.
