Has anyone started mowing or doing spring clean-ups yet?

    We started with our early spring fertilizer and lime applications. It's nice to get that out of the way a little early and the grass is responding well to it.

    Been Mowing most the year off and on between the rain. Finished pruining all the trees and cutting back of rose bushes (huge thing here with Jackson Perkins in our back yard). Very little spring cleanups yet. Alot of twig and branch cleanups from the rain and wind we had here a few days ago.
    Fert first week in march if weather is good.
    Grass is looking like it really might be perking up and looking for some real growth instead of the 1-2 inches in a month.
    Yes looking forward to the sunny days to come.

    Funny, we still have months of winter left. We are expecting 10" of snow today. Spring cleanups start maybe mid april if we are lucky. It snowed April 20 last year. Might be mowing early May.

    I've been doing a few "spring cleanups" for the last few weeks. Nothing too big, but every little bit helps. I've done some tree pruning/thinning, and I just got a small landscape design job I'll be working on.
    I've been offering a 10% discount on spring cleanups completed before March 5, so that is bringing some early work.

    Can't wait for that warm weather!!!
