Hi all,

Lawn care business owner from Alberta, Canada. Started last year in the fall and got through our first season of snow removal. Really looking forward to spring and the growing season ... NOT to mention the warmer weather, LOL

Looking forward to getting to know a few people here in the business!

Welcome to our forum!

How did you promote your snow plowing services? What is your view on your first winter season?

Hi Justin & Canuck,

I can sure relate to the snow, here we still have about a foot still on places in the yard.... south facing slopes exempt LOL I'm looking forward to being able to get out into the yards soon, i hope ... with luck in two weeks!

Glad to see a few other Canadians here.

Hey Grasskeepers,

My snow removal charges were on residential yards only this last year. My prices varied from a per time fee of $30.00/hr to monthly fees ranging from $100.00 to $175.00 per month depending on the amount required.

Due to being only on residential, we only used shovels, snowblower and a blower for real light stuff, depending on the day.

What did you use?

Blue Mountain/ Collingwood area has exploded for many years now, I used to rent chalets for the winter around the Tyrolean Lane area. I left that area once Interwest bought Blue. I did ski patrol for Blue, you may find my liver kicking around the Jozo's area. Great area for sure.
