    I all depends on your location. My cutting season doesnt start till mid april usually so I start sometime late febuary to early march depending on the weather if we have snow on the ground still its kind of pointless. Who wants to think about lawn care when they are worrying about ice and snow...When the green starts showing you had better have your ads running...
