    I hate doing spring cleanups all the way to the bank! They are great moneymakers.

    I look at Spring Cleanups as a reintroduction to the real work a day world, it is welcome after a long winter of relative inactivity.
    Not to mention that the bank account can use a break after all of the minus transactions for the past few months.. Now If I could only controll Mother Nature - after a couple of false starts last week we are now back into the grip of Winter, The yard and accounts have white stuff covering them and it was 20° the last time I looked..

    Mine are not as bad as Fall clean-ups. They are great money makers and are a good way to have contact with the customer to discuss other potential landscaping projects.
