    Cut when grass needs to be cut. Advertise when YOU think you need to advertise. Be it March or October. Think about it this way - 2 nd in business - when do you blow snow??????

    Whats up Smarino, Im from macomb, 21 and romeo plank...well, used to be when i was growing up.

    To answer your question my newspaper add goes back in this month, you'd be surprised how early typically older people like to set up their lawn service. I got a call 2 weeks ago from an older guy for lawn servicing.

    Now is the time to start advertising, really hit it hard in march, and as far as when I start mowing its usually around early to mid april.

    I would start around the first of year for the next season. Don't think people are very interested before the holidays except existing accounts.:)

    It just depends on were you live I guess. It's pointless in the area because people don't have much money.
