    I had planned to start cutting the first week in April. Friday i had a customer call and tell me his backyard needed to be cut as soon as I could get to it. Of course I pulled up first thing next morning. Being that I am only 9 months into the biz this got me excited about the year. Sorry to go on and on but just wanted to see if evryone else gets excited about the first cut of the year.

    I mowed my first yard of the season today. Two more people want their's done next week. Not to bad for the 2nd week of March. If we get any rain at all, its going to be crazy very soon.

    We've been mowing on and off all winter. I never had to winterize the mowers. We are back to full mowing (around 110 yards) this week along with mulch, pinestraw, installations etc..

    I've been mowing on and off all winter but they are starting to come back to me. Should be at full steam in 2 weeks.
