    Tony,

    I feel your pain! It actually took us till 2PM Sat. to finish our mowing this week. Between the weather and a few guys out w/ whatever flu-like symptoms that have been going around, I fell way behind w/ my mulching & planting this week. I think we only got 15 places mulched:angry: . Had to do about 22 to stay on track. Look at the bright side - check NJDrought.org - all systems go. Hopefully a nice cool, wet summer (boy am I dreamin' or what?)

    We just can not get caught up. I am surprised by how far behind we are, because we have not had our usual rains this spring. We worked 14hrs on Fri., but still had to work a half day Sat. The high humidity and heavy morning dew is causing the grass to grow just as if we had got some good rains.:)

    I am sooo behind. I have 2 guys helping me just to keep up. I can't even chase work away. Tell them a high price and 3 weeks and they don't complain. It doesn't help that I got the flu or it's twin brother. Man do I feel like ****, especially at the end of the day. The sparatic rain and heavy dew doesn't help either. Don't start mowing to 10 because it is so wet. Hope it dries up soon and I kick this bug.

    i understand. with all the rain/tornadoes down this way all week i didn't get started on monday's work until friday. got almost completely caught up with the exception of about 5 (4 are zero lot yards). demoing a 60 lazer for the weekend hasn't hurt either! (thanks Homer @ AgCenter Millington)

    Lawns are quickly getting caught up. I feel compelled, pressured to get back on schedule, I know you understand.

    But the real money jobs (bobcat cleanups & grading, sod installs, mulch gardens, fallen limbs, a retaining wall)being pushed back.

    What to do, what to do.......
    Soooo much $$$$, sooooo little time!!



    :D

    Its been raining alot here. This weeks forecast is mostly rain, I don't mind a little drizzle but it has poured a few days. The grass is growing like crazy, I worked this morning just to keep from falling too far behind.
