    It's just getting cold & the leaves are falling. Then it starts snowing. I'm never done for the year.

    Does anyone know the process to become a licensed applicator for lawns in Pennsylvania. What do I have to do to? Where do I take the test? After I take the test when can I start working? Do I have to work for another licensed applicator before I can do things on my own? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    We do round 4 up until October 20, then we start round 5 and try to finish by November 20. Irrigated lawns get aerated by early October......the rest get aerated in late October thru November. Some years, we get snow in late October >> then we wait until it melts, and go again. Most years, we get all our work done, but we'll take aeration requests thru early December just so the ground isn't frozen.

    Last week a lady asked if we were about done for the year..........I didn't have the heart to tell her that most lawn mowing companies are mowing on Sundays right now just to keep up....jeeze!

    Some years, we're mowing in early December >> hope it's that way this year too.
