Nov 9th I have everything set to go to bang out my clean ups its below 40 degrees already and when I scouted more then 80 of my accounts today only 3 were ready. Talk about frustrating I just want to start already and those damm Norway maples and red oaks and beach trees seem to be mocking me. I guess my yard is going to move to the top of the list. The part that is bugging me is the length of the leaf season I am starting to think I may have as little as 3 weeks before the snow ends it. I am thinking I need to have the biggest baddest fall clean up tools I can get since the seasons are so short I need to move on the leaves as fast as I can to avoid upsetting my customers. The real money is in the fert and the lawn cuts for us the clean ups are really just part of the job nothing to look forward to but god I wish I could do some already before it gets any colder.
