    I do alot of leaf cleanups. and I also plant a TON of Pansies. Flower be cleanups. Flower bed installs. Trim trees in the fall (not the winter). Do alot of fertilizing as well. Fence repairs.

    and SLEEP ALOT.

    Advertise a bunch, and read ALOT on lawnsite.com

    Every year from November 1st to March 15th I go to my winter home in Florida, and Relax, If there is alot of snow in the forecast for my area, I will take a cheap flight home for a week or so and help my employees Plow, My favorite thing to do is PLOW SNOW

    What kepts me going all year is looking forward to the off season to relax on the beach

    I don't do nothing for winter. Winter takes care of itself.

    Seriously- In the winter you can do lots of odd jobs like carpentry work, painting, sell Christmas trees, as well as leaf cleanup.

    We do a TON of fall clean ups. We stay just as busy in the fall as we do in the summer. We get calls for tree removal, bed cleanouts, gutter cleanouts and so forth. Just think of some things you could do in the fall and get to it NOW. Don't wait until fall rolls around to start. There are a number of things that you can do to stay busy.
