    Come on down, seems like everybody else is. I'm pretty sure they're handing out mowers as you cross the state line, that's the only reason I can come up with why I see 100's of mowers being pulled daily.

    Hmm...I always assumed that for those who didn't get snow in the winter, the grass would still grow. I learned something today.

    save save save! during the season and don't look back, just relax during dec jan and feb, it's what the teachers do, during the summer! I also have a part time job though, that ups my hrs during the winter because they know what I do.

    that's crazy. i figured florida would be the fewest lawn care people since it's so hot and humid down there.

    it's bad enough here in alabama. i couldn't imagine mowing in florida in july and august. :laugh:

    That's what I was wondering about to. I'm an llc and you can't do that.
