    How is everyone making out? Not that long ago it seemed like it was raining every day. Now, there is no rain in sight. I know that this is typically a dry month, but we are like 3" low on rain fall for this month. The skips have really started pouring on like wildfire. Lawns are so burned up there is no signs of life, or future cutting for that matter. We did 2 1/2 days worth of work today due to skips. Hope others are doing better then we are.:)

    Come on Fall clean ups!!!:)

    After this week I'll probably have to skip a few. Good thing I have landscaping work lined up to fill in.

    We are down in Gloucester County. We have been doing a little tree work, and have some small landscape jobs to do. However, was not expecting for the lawn to burn up so soon. We did not start skipping and moving customers to bi-weekly until like September last year. Even some customers with irrigation have lawns looking pretty hit. Guess next week is a great week for two of our people to be going on vacation.:)
