    How many are doing less mowing and more landscape maintenance this year due to the low amounts of rain fall? I know I am ... the amount of mowing is way down, as I am not about to mow dry, burnt up lawns just because someone is on contract (agreement) with me!

    More pruning, clearing, cleaning, mulching etc., ... less riding around on the mower!

    How about you guys?

    Actually it's been raining here so much that I've been doing twice as much of mowing & landscape maintenance. It's just now starting to dry out now though so I'm sure that will change.

    Well I am trying to get more maintenance jobs. Been trying to push mulch installs. I've been doing quite a bit of hand weeding and some shrub maintenance. Cleanups here and there, cutting up and removing a downed tree here and there, a few mulch installs, etc. Good thing because nearly all my weekly cuts are bi-weekly right now due to this stupid drought.
