The temperatures decided to drop pretty quick this year.  It seems like we went from short sleeves to hoodies and coats almost instantly. 

The mowing crews are continuing to move through the routes for the time being.  Looking at the trees, they will be working on fall clean ups before too much longer.  If you already signed up for your fall clean up, you can sit back and enjoy the leaves.  We are going through the equipment and routes and will get it handled for you. 

Our fertilizer technician is working on our fall herbicide and fertilizer application.  This round targets the harder to control broad leaf weeds as they are getting ready for winter.  

The next thing we are preparing for is the snow.  We have started to send out contracts to our existing snow clients.  We ask that if you received a contract, you get it back to us as soon as possible.  After October 15, we will open up any spots left on our routes to new snow clients.  Last year, we turned away work because we will not overload our crews and sacrifice quality to our existing clients.  I am guessing that will be happening again this year. 

The Farmers Almanac is calling for an unseasonably cold and snowy winter for Ohio this year.  They are even calling for snowfall that is greater than normal for the Lower Great Lakes and Ohio Valley areas. 

When people ask me about my thoughts on the winter this year, I will give the same answer I always give.  I will tell you in April.
