    Everyone's been out this past week in western PA. Hey, if it ain't snowing, you better get going. We get calls this time every year wanting to to know where we are because ChemLawn's been there already.

    Its snowing right now in Cleveland! The big problem will be the snow mounds on the tree lawns, and thats where we need the pre-emergent most. I got my Rd.1 material last week and I am anxoius to start doing apps.

    Will be starting this week, but gotta love when TGCL goes running out and throws it on the snow, or in the swamp in the middle of the lawn that hasnt receded yet from all the rain. had them 2 weeks ago throwing fert down on a lawn, mind you it was friday mar 7th, there were flooding warnings everywhere and an expected snowfall of 10+ inches. They did the lawn anyways with snow coming down, and yes it was 10+ inches,....21 inches to be exact and the people got an estimate from me that same day! Guess who the cancelled! You think TGCL ever looks at the weather forecast or for that matter even care?.....NOT!
