    How many are still doing leaf cleanups / leaf removal? we had about an inch of snow and some freezing rain to come later on but I am still doing cleanups .... Hopefully I will be done by the week of Christmas.

    I do them all "winter" here in Texas. I take as many new calls as I can since the grass isn't growing. Leaf cleanups usually run well into the spring. I don't turn them down until I'm on my regular mowing schedule and don't have time.

    We have one day left. I would like to advertise for more, but for the time being, the temp will be below or around freezing for the next several days. Can't pick up leaves when they're frozen to the ground.

    I finished up today. The only stuff I have to do until March is the lawns that I put tall fescue on as a winter grass. They'll stop growing shortly though. I have some other stuff to do like some fence gates to put in and a couple of houses to wash. Just enough to keep beer in the fridge. :drinkup:

    I still have around 3-4 to do, but all the leaves are currently frozen to the ground, so I cant finish til it warms up!! Sucks!! Is it just me, or did it get really cold, really fast this year?

    same here. Still advertising for them and getting calls almost daily. Mostly tirekickers. Gutter cleaning too. Bradford pear trees are just now really starting to shed..

    My regulars are nearly done. There are always the stragglers that wait until all their neighbors yards are clean before they call anyone.

    Hopefully I will pick up a few of those in the next couple of weeks.

    We dodged the snow bullet today...just got rain...temps supposed to really plunge and the winds will kick up tonite.
