    Man I keep on adding more and more customers lately. I have added 3 more in the past week, and I have four more that are going to let me know by the end of next week. I think that I will get two of them for sure.

    It's amazing that they are even thinking about lawn care with the amount of snow that is on the ground

    We were booked solid thru September as of 12-31-04...Thats just the commercial landscape....The strom is about to start on the spring stuff due to we have had some nice sunny days and NO snow on the ground.

    Spring fever :cool2:

    Good Troy & I agree with Bobby that early callers are serious about wanting the service & not just price shopping.

    As long as I've been in business, I rarely get calls in March. Most of my calls come in late April and even early May. No matter when I advertise. I don't know if it's the people around here or what. One year I sent out a huge # of fliers in Feb/March and didn't get a single call. I don't even worry about it anymore until the snow melts.

    I know what you guys mean. That is why I was a little surprised at the number of customers that were contacting me. Usually I get flooded with phone calls the first week of May, but never in March. April I get calls for spring clean ups, but it's strictly just spring clean ups.
