    Its been one of the hottest summers that I can remember so far this year.In the last 2 weeks I think I have had more people ask me about plowing then landscaping.Last year we were well over our average snowfall.Even got almost two feet April 26th.Also last year seemed to be the year that a few company's did not perform the work they were paid to do.Here it is only August and the calls are already coming in.That means dropping all of the PITA customers and replacing them with new one's and raising the rates to where they should be.

    Lux Lawn thats great.

    Just make sure you are not getting the other guys PITA customers.

    With the price of fuel there is always room for an increase.

    That was a GREAT winter,I had a good time all winter.
    I had to replace a tranny and tires and still made money well over that.
    March was outstanding for me, 5 events that I got to hit 8 times for cash.
    Bring on the snow! Maybe this year it starts in OCT and goes thru April again!
