Looks to be the same for me. Last year I was already mowing. Thats New England for you.

Tomorrow spose to be 58 then it goes back to the 50s for the rest of the week.

I managed to get almost everything ready today. New oil, fuel filters, batteries installed, fresh gas. I drove around the yard for about 15 mins looking like a idiot.

Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
Damn fellas, I hope your weather gets better. I've been mowing since... well we never stop. It slows in the winter, every week yards become every other week and every other weeks become every 3 weeks. I do have a couple accounts that only get done every three weeks but I do them every three weeks all year around. No money to go to four.

But I start every week mowings this week. I have had plenty of mulch jobs already, even some landscape jobs. Our spring is getting hot.

Hope our warm weather heads your way.

I should be mowing by Monday....The temps are finally here and the grass is kicking it.....

Yesterday was 76 degrees and the extended forcast looks pretty good, slight drop off over the weekend but it looks like it will stay in the 60's....

That's good to hear, glad grass is growing now so everyone can start mowing. Most residential properties aren't being mowed yet, but when I'm out doing errands I can see other lawn services already mowing commercial properties even though the grass doesn't look like its quite ready, we've been getting some good rain showers where I live, so grass will be growing soon, its already greened up.

It is bad here in Wisconsin. I won't be mowing for 2+ weeks. We just got all the snow gone and this week we have had about 3 inches of rain so far. Atleast the calls are starting to come in but few will sign up because they "got time to think about it". I did get a call from SC Johnson's neighbor! Who has 200+acres.

Thanks!
