    I started yesterday, making a lot of adjustments to my trailer, I fixed my none working jack and replaced it with a new one. Today we added racks for 4 backpacks and to hang other stuff. We also lubed, changed oil, blades for all our mowers. Tomorrow i'll make some few more adjustments and head out to remove some trees and shrubs. Clean ups I might start saturday or until Monday.

    usually start mowing in April. Calling and visiting customers this week sniffing for mulch & cleanup jobs to get the money rolling in. First call for power washing estimates comming in. Mostly equipment service to start season. To me the season starts when the $$ does. My friend was in Patomic Md Mon and said it was greaning up down there so that puts my area about 2 weeks away.
