    Just wondering how many guys are like myself not working yet.

    The end of this week we'll start doing light cleanups, sod fixing from plowing, brooming off the boulevards, etc.

    Next week mulch jobs, head to ND fishing for 2 days, then hit it full time with cleanups and first round of fertilizer / Dimension.

    It didn't help we got 2-5" of snow last Friday and they're talking rain tomorrow.

    Soil temps here are right around 40-45 degrees. Gonna take a few days to get where we're too concerned about hitting it full time.

    I haven't, then again, I haven't officially opened the business. hahaha

    I'm hoping to start dropping business cards off with individual pricing around locally to get started.

    I've done cleanups, but haven't started my mowing yet... just too darn cold for the grass to really take off yet. Talking about upper 60's and low 70's for the next week or so, that should get things to take off.... FINALLY! Last year at this time I'd been going for a month solid already!
