i was thinking, what a freakin rat race it is here in nj, and anywhere else where we have such a limited season, as well as sooo many variables, in the lawncare business. first, comming out of winter dormancy, we need to worry about crabgrass, april, and may is spent on crab grass and weed prevention, then we quickly move on to the humidity of june and july, accompanied by fungus, disease, grubs, and insects, as if the excessive heat isnt enough. then, once again, weeds are a concern, quickly followed by the cool season, aeration, thatching, seeding, and finally winter hibernation. and all this occurs in a 7 month stretch. man, talk about not getting a fair shot. by the time we address one problem, its time for another, and then it's quittin time. anyone else feel the same?
