    Has anyone out there who lives close to Toronto got any phone calls for this season yet? Man I was booked up by April 1st last year!

    I have delivered over 1000 door hangers and only one call. The only thing they said is that they would call when it's warmer. I'm starting to think I'm delivering to soon.

    1000 high end residential. Lots of people aren't even back from vacation yet. No tracks in the snow and still like a foot of snow in York region.

    I'm in Fergus just north of Guelph. Still lots of snow up here, got 1 e-mail the other day from a lady asking for a quote....that's all so far. We did get hammered with snow this year as I'm sure you guys are well aware of. Lots of nice weather comin up next week so it should get rid of the rest of this snow and get people thinking about their lawns

    I'm in hamilton and averaging one call a day. mostly sod quotes. 3 lawn contracts thus far! I booked one for snow already for next season. No calls back on any of my fliers I put out.

    On the other hand I was laying sod and cutting in march last year.

    Now I'm just waiting for the phone to ring for cleanups after this ice storm. Tree beside my house lost a big limb already.
