    21 New accounts for the year so far!

    Had the strangest thing happen to me today. New customer called for an estimate - oddly enough he was saved in my phone in my contacts! I had no idea who he was... turns out he called me 2 years ago for an estimate but 2 hours later he called to cancel - said "the guy who does my lawn showed up" (at the last minute). Well apparently I didn't have a pen or paper at the time and told him to keep my number and call me if anything changes.

    Well he did ... 2 years later!

    Another crazy thing happened today. My new Ad's started today - got 6 estimates and somehow got to them all today! And even crazier thing is I won ALL of them! That's never happened before!!! 3 of them said the price was too high, but then went and hired me anyway. Could it of been my old spice after shave? :laugh:

    Could have been they were lying to see if you'd throw out a lower number.

    I wondered if that was you when I saw the truck.

    I was everywhere yesterday. I call it "mileage Monday" - Plum, Monroeville, Oakmont, Forest Hills. Ugh.


    I was headed just up the street when you saw me. An existing customer is moving a mile away from their current home and I was going to look at the new location.
    AWESOME! It's literally right across the street from two other cuts I do! What are the odds?!!!
    Bad news. Terraced back yard with walls and narrow steps. Can't get my mower up there to mow. Looks like I'll have a slot to fill when they move.

    I do believe the official start of high-growth rate season for turf grasses in SW PA began on Monday.

    If given a choice, I would rather work in double sweatshirts with controlled grass growth, than short-sleeves and hayfields.

    How do you keep your socks clean when trimming? My pants look green from the waist down, but I hate wearing jeans on hot days like that!
