    We've got about 2-3 feet of hard packed snow on the ground and its with the low temp records we've been setting it looks like I'll be starting the season in June.

    Maybe one day if I plan on going to the West Coast I'll let you know.. I don't have aim/aol.. I ride a Harley and we go all over the State, but since I'm back in the Lawn Care that'll taper off some.. But who knows !! :cool:

    fatboy i wish you best of luck. chad glad to see you are back.
    as for spring cleanups here, not for atleast 2 more months, after somewhat warmer weather (above freezing during the day) we are beginning to see patches of ground, but in some areas especially where snow was piled ground is no where near. in addition more snow for the next few days. i cant believe im in delaware, but i cant complain.

    Things are starting to pickup alot around here in south ms, you can see a green tint in the grass. You guys up north have been catching h@#$.
  8. Well we dont have many clean ups jobs right now
    So 3rd wk in March

    we will be delivering flyers like mad 10k 1 wk

    Then we will be starting our spring clean ups and leaving a 18x24 yard sign at each residential home.

    All of our weekly lawn care customers MUST sign up for a spring cleaning or meat or spring cleaning standards. So far only 2 have not signed up.

    So Last wk in March and untill April 20 is our SPRING CLEAN SEASON.

    Weekly maintenance starts April 21 2003

    Lawn dethatching and aeration will be performed 1st wk of May
    untill end of season..

    Also we have 1 clean up job that we could use some help on.
    It is a house and the back yard slopes down to a creek.

    The slope it about 35 ft x 200

    Filled will weeds and brush

    Cant use chemicals because the home owner does not what it to run off into the creek.

    Is a controlled burn the best way to go

    You know with a propane tourch.

    Please help

    Thank You

    Best of luck to you all

    That is really good news for you! The only spring clean ups that I am doing is removing the snow from driveways and walks right now.

    Hey Fatboy Lou, Guess you ride a Fatboy? My last scooter was a 1997 Fatboy. I sold it to buy my lawn equipment, plus didn't think I would have the time to ride until got this biz up and going.
