Plow stakes out already?

    We were mowing last week, it was hot and sunny and we must have counted 8-10 driveways with plow stakes up already. I thought I was missing something. One driveway must have had at least 10-15 8ft high stakes. It looked like they used those bicycle safety poles with the flags on them and just took the flags off,lol.

    Why so early?

    It states it in some of my contracts for stakes by a certain date and I like to get it done early. Less to worry about as the snow gets closer. I only plow commercial accounts and most of them don't mind around November 1.

    No staking around here until after Halloween. The ghost and goblins like to move them to places I can not find.

    I've already staked. Actually, I was doing it last weekend while it was snowing. :)

    If I staked this early they would be gone by first snow.Those landscaping
    people still cutting and waiting for leaves to fall.Probably find them for sale
    on here:eek: Bad enough when they beat me to them in the spring.
