    Depends on the the weather for me. I usually advertise as soon as the snow starts to melt. Never had much luck doing it any earlier.

    Advertise! I havent advertised in several years. As a matter of fact this developer I mow and bush hog for just keeps throwing more work my way. Ive actually let go a few yards a couple years ago (the PITA ones) because we were so busy.
    I am getting a little leary about putting all my eggs in one basket though. Especially after reading the HD thread. I have decided to take more jobs lately as I finally found good help though.
    But to answer your question, you should start Jan and Feb. By mar and apr most people have made up their minds (residential). Commercials start much earlier
