    How are you other Northeast guys making out this week? Is everyone still working on cleanups? Mulch?

    When are you fellows slated to start cutting?

    Monday we will start to cut, with skips as necessary. The weather was so cooperative we blew right threw our cleanups and 90% of mulch. I need to start cutting. I cant remember when we got 3 full weeks in this time of year.

    Matt started working the week of March 17th, doing a few cleanups, a few retaining block jobs, some bed edging, etc., jobs that needed to be done before the mowing season started.
    Then he started cutting a few last week, and this week he is in full swing with the cutting schedule.

    One more week of cleanups, at least a week of mulch, and odd jobs. Then hopefully mowing first week of May. Coming off a sh!* winter like we had, it feels good to be working!!!
