Spring has sprung in south

The last two weeks we have had temps in the 70's here and last week it rained for like 3 days. This week phone is ringing off the hook. We cut 47 properties since monday, did 2 landscape cleanups, an irrigation repair, 1 new residental contract, and several calls for estimates. We have 26 to cut tomorrow and one landscape cleanup. Normally we dont start like this till the last week of February. Not complaining.:dancing: Normally I sit on the couch from jan 1st till late feb while my 2 guys are doing 15-18 hours a week. No break this year. We been working at least 40hrs a week since new years. We had 3 landscape installs in January (beds, irrigation, sod, and lighting on one)
Gonna be a long summer. Looks like I may have to start a 3rd maintenace crew this year.

Much of the same her in South Carolina. I have a lot of work that has been booked in the last 14 days! Time to get back in the saddle.

While it is still freezing up here, I probably could go out and get some leaf clean-ups done. It is definately a mild winter up here!!

Though I am pretty jealous of your 70 degree temps!!!!!

We have some St. Augustine yards that we never stopped cutting. Crazy winter for sure, fruit trees and tons of plants are blooming like crazy... pollen everywhere.
People have started calling wanting installs and spring cleanups done, but I've seen it snow here in March so you never know.
