The lawns that get fertilized are still growing at a good clip with the warmth, even the crappy lawns are growing enough to mow... One customer even said to me today "I'll see ya next week" I don't think anyone's ever said that to me in November before. A few have called to make sure I haven't put the mowers away for the season.

The leaves for the most part haven't begun to fall. A lot of trees are near peak, they should start to drop by next week I figure.

The leaves are coming down pretty good here now but not enough to start full cleanups.I still have some to mow next week and maybe all of them ill see when i get out.I used the nice weather today to finish some brush clearing jobs ive been pushing back and finish painting one of my plows.

No work on these last few nice days. Its play time while the weather last, have all winter to work and the grass will still need mowed in the spring.
BTW - I charge a lot more for spring clean ups than fall :D

This weather is great but I'm tired of mowing thats for sure! But nothing beats doing fall clean ups in a ss t-shirt.
