And so the madness begins

It's happening. Silly season is starting following reasonable weekend weather (although we could get a knock back this week).

However, we've also noticed the ground temp has risen immensely this week and is now averaging 8+ degrees, which is going to get that grass waking up.

Machines washed, Oil topped up, New blades fitted, Final adjustments made...

Ladies and Gentleman, start your engines.....

    I think that's it now at least for a slow start. All my clients have now had a grass cut except the contracts for the big stuff but that's going to have to start next week I think!
  • And I just got done with the leaves, hahahaha
