    I was just wondering how much business can be expected in the winter months. I would like to turn a successful part time business into a full time job, if the opportunity presents its self. I guess what I would like to know about are the services that can be provided to sustain income through the off season?

    Do some searches for off season work on this site, there are some lengthy lists shown.
    My cutting has slowed way down, but I'm busier now than the height of summer, gotta plan ahead.

    we do ALOT of leaf removal and bed renovations in the fall. we also do tree removal and fence construction. it all just depends on what you CAN do, and if you're willing to put in the hard work to find the jobs.
