Default Has everyone started Mowing??

I just can't wait to get the season started, mowing that is. I wanted to begin customer mows yesterday but wasn't sure it was needed yet. So I started with my lawn and the answer was not yet, really wasn't needed.

Has anyone else started mowing that lives in the northeast??

I've cut mine twice now.

Fertilizer has a funny way of speeding up the growing process.

Going to mow a new client's lawn today - hers is nowhere near as thick/high as mine was though.

Still puddles in the yards from last weeks rain, and supposed to rain every day this week except one. Even some light snow mixed in one night.

Short answer > no.

(but getting the itch)

Here in the Norcal foot hills I am mowing mine almost 3 times per week to keep it looking good. I have however reseeded and fertilized the hell out of it this year and with our rain today and 80F sun tomorrow type of weather everything is going crazy. I have already started my field mowing a couple months ago but calls for service in residential lawns are non existent right now.

I hear ya Tom.
Looking at the records from last year, I mowed customer lawns twice in April. So I guess we are too far behind schedule.
I have another estminate to give today, gutter cleaning and spring clean up. Maybe everyone else is getting itchy also.
