    Hey guys, things are really turning green here in Texas, and I'm starting to have calls come in. The weather is turning nice with highs in the 60s and 70s also. just wondering, who else is about to start their mowing season. Let the fun begin.

    about three weeks away. still calling for snow this week. Grass is starting to not look as brown as it did a few weeks ago. That's encouraging I guess.

    I anticipate we have about 4 weeks yet here in Michigan before cutting really begins. Clean ups and misc. stuff should be a little sooner.

    We've gotten over 5 inches of pure rain this year already plus about 6 inches of snow. We are way ahead so the grass is already greening up. Ill be going a few weeks earlier then I usually do.

    Next week, the lawns i overseeded need cutting now. Its wierd cause Ive been out there working for a month and I see the news and its snowing behind the anchor. I forget what season it is cause as long as Im working its "summer" in my mind.
