Finished up today for the year.
1/2 acre aeration with a 20 mph wind and snow flurries.
Time to hunker down in the office until March.
Glad to be done with this season. Weather kept trying to kick my b#tt all year long.
Had to non- service about 2 grand in work because I ran out of time.:realmad:

Maybe next year will be jusssssst right!:rolleyes:

This weather screwed me! I lost 10K in winterizer apps. due to the early freeze. I do not know how I am going to make it through the winter now.

Our soil temps dropped below freezing a week ago. Even if it warms back up to the 40's next week, the lawn is now dormant and will not convert the N will into carbohydrates if applied this late.
Saw Scotts out today. Ground is completely frozen. ...Geez

With the weather being cold enough to bring on snow flurries, what is an aeration going to do for the turf?
Ground was still soft. Heavy thatch layer in this lawn. This will start to relieve the thatch and compaction, what does cold have to do with it? Pulled really nice plugs.

I had to leave a few leaf jobs because of snow, but the customer said to leave them, so I did. It will be a nice spring clean up now.
