Last year cutting by now. Everything still Dormant and this don’t help.
I visited your area a couple years ago. Beautiful country.......especially this time of year.
What a difference a year makes...
last year, this time, on our 3rd and maybe 4th cut..
this year, first cuts on many lawns this week, and some of those were sketchy, green but patchy and zipping through them with no real heavy lush spring growth. (and these are my pretty ones!)
Cracks me up to see the usual group of maniac lawnboys running full tilt like we're in some crazy growth pattern-when you know what they're really doing. lol
it's the ebb and flow of the lawn world.
Is same boat here too more snow and ice today. New salt spreader getting a work out.
Another thing I Love About Residential.
Snow contracts much for forgiving on Salt Requirements and this more an Ice Event than Snow. Not in the contracts to show for this.
Mulch that snow...it'll become nutrients for the frozen turf.
You know what they say...
Screw global warming!
When he’ll freezes over, we will ride there too!
Been cutting for a month now where I am, I feel for you fellas with the cold "wing" ( winter/spring) this year!!
Last year at this time I was on cut 3 for most customers. This year? Zero. Too cool with lots of rain (and last night 4 inches of snow!) But I have been able to get all my cleanups, gutter cleaning and aerating in without the stress of balancing those jobs with mowing, so it's not all that bad.
Plus, looking back, most years when we've had earlier than normal springs and mowing started in late March, July and August were unseasonably dry with little mowing. So we'll see.
Temps to reach the 50s this week, and I have a full schedule of cleanups and aerating to finish. Then next week 60s, so timing should work out ok.
