    Hey guys, i've been reading through the site for a few days now, this is my first post though. I have been mowing for quite a few years now, but only 5 or 6 lawns each year...nothing big. I was thinking about picking up about 30-40 accounts next year and make this more of a full time operation. I was wondering what time of the season do you guys do all of the other things besides mowing? For example, fertilizing, aerating, etc. I am from New York, so the normal mowing season is from about April 1-October 31. Thanks for the help.

    I'm in Ohio i do my fertilizing every 6 to 8 weeks and aerate in the fall when the mowing slows down.
