    Usually doing pre-emergents last week of Feb, and 1st week of Mar, SCUs for contract clients come right after that's done if weather is good. Non contract clients get done as they call unless they made arrangements beforehand.

    I guess it will depend upon when the weather breaks there.
    Going into our 5th season this year, and we've never started before March 15th.

    Usually the end of March or beginning of April, since we get snow here sometimes all the way up to Memorial Day

    Whenever the snow melts

    That is usually around April 1st. Of course last year I plowed on March 29th...so who knows.

    I know what you mean with plowing snow...we were doing a spring clean up one year and we had to stop and get our snow equipment up and running because it fell 3 inches on us, and this was around the end of April.

    Thats true, last year it snowed April 1st and 2nd.
    We had the plows put away and just started getting the lawn equipment ready.

    2 plows and spring cleanups makes for a great revenue month!:D

    I usually start around the first of April. But, the way this winter is going it might be earlier. You never know, just depends on when snow melts(if we ever get some).
