    Just now really starting to pick up. We are about 6" low for rainfall so far this year. I've barely cut any yards without irrigation.

    Lot's of install work though this spring that makes up for the lull.

    We mowed about 90% of our lawns this week. Most of them were easy but a few were getting pretty shaggy.

    I'm a first year newbie but like business so far. I've been doing a number of spring cleanups and so far have 10 seasonal contracts, 2 year round ones, and I have 3 quotes to do today.

    You guys enjoying the rain today? I seeded and prepped 6 new constructions last week and was starting to get worried about it not growing since it was so dry.

    Been really busy since late Feb. We're about a week behind schedule on spring cleanup and mulch installs. Lawnjockey51, check out Mid-Atlantic trailers in Mechanicsville.
