    Hey North Eastern folks, Just wondering when you guys are starting to do spring clean ups? I think we will be starting this week here in North NJ. I will start with whatever houses I did not do final clean ups for. I saw some guys who started last week, but it seemed too early since the ground is very wet, even this past saturday it was pouring like crazy so I don't know if its possible for tomorrow maybe tuesday. When are you guys going to start? or did you start already?

    Hey guys, I have a side question on this subject. I started last year late in the season. I expect to get a few calls on Spring Cleanups and basically wanted to know what you guys include in your cleanups.

    I wish I could go out today. 10th. I doubt I'll even be able to get out before the 19th. Maybe I'll see how some of my dust bowls are while I'm out there doing estimates, but I'm staying off my nicer lawns till the last week of March.

    I started cutting pampas grass today, will probably be doing some cleanups by the end of the week I suppose.

    It's only the second week in March, we're going to get more snow the way this years going.

    I was thinking about starting this week. We're going to bring the snowblower along with us to blow off the 3+ feet of snow so we can get to the beds!:laugh: Seriously, we have another month, at least before we can get started. All the equipment is still snowbound.

    I have the freakin flu... but if I'm feeling better, I''l start on Thursday or Friday. I have a new customer that asked me to get it done as soon as I could... cleanup and some power raking. His beds look like they never got done in the fall. I sure won't work on St Patty's day though! Or... Good Friday... so I want to get started.
