    I am hoping to finish up spcus this week (by 4/11) and then be starting weekly service 4/15... Possbily 4/22, but hopefully 4/15.... How about you?

    How's clean-ups going?

    Have fun

    We have a few lawns we have already cut 3 times this spring. I think this week we will do about 70% of our lawns then next week just about all of them. We have been doing mulch jobs but no clean-ups. We very rarely get any clean-up jobs. Our lawns are still clean from last fall when we cleaned them.

    Hey thanks for the reply
    I remember you have 1 clean up to do out of 70 or so customers.

    "Our lawns are still clean from last fall????????????????????"

    What? I mean this repectfully but....

    No sticks ever fall on your lawns? They don't need dethatching or bed edging or cultivating? No leaves fall from oaks or other trees in late winter? They lime and fertilize themselves?

    No matter how clean a lawn is in december it needs a clean-up in march or april. At least where I live. Not to mention the thousands and thousands of dollars in work.

    Whatever works for you is great, but not in my world. Again, not a dis- just a different area I guess.

    I am hoping to start spring cleanups by May 1rst. We still have 2-4 feet of snow on the ground here plus the piles from plowing. I has to warm up a lot for me to start by May 1 though.
