View Full Version : Work tomorrow....not kidding

A fertilization customer calls me up today and asks whether I would dig up her annual beds for her and turn over the beds. I said sure, no problem I will be out there tomorrow morning. The ground is not frozen, temps tomorrow will be in the 40's, and with no snow in sight, I don't mind a little work to get my buttocks off from the computer chair.

This is the latest that I have ever done a landscaping/lawn job. Before the previous record was Dec. 5th. It just seems really odd that I will be working outside tomorrow on the first day of winter.

Well, I just got back in from doing the job. Only took me about 45 mins and a quick $52 in my pocket.

I love doing these little odd jobs now and then.

Same here.. We are still doing landscape projects, brick work and plantings. I think the lawn and landscape season is starting to get longer and longer. I know a few yards that could be mowed right now.. If the ground in not frozen keep working and make money...The snow and colder temps will come..

I have noticed the past three seasons that winter has taken a back seat. Next year I am doing a different approach and planning ahead big time. I am going to push for more work into the winter season
