Spring is almost here. Time to push winter aside. Although I'm sure we will see more snow before winter finally loses grip on the Southern Tier of New York and Northeast Pennsylvania.

So, now is the time to think about your lawn and possibly landscaping. And believe me, my backyard could use some tender loving care. And for the front, late last year I had some ugly vegetation removed, and now it's just a muddy mess waiting to be turned into something nice.

I took a look at YELP! to find what the Southern Tier area is recommending for landscaping services, and found quite a few. I'm sure it's not a complete list since some great services don't show up for whatever reason, but if you know of a great landscaping company that you have used in the past, let me know and I will add it to this list.

And as always, as far as we know, these businesses are still in operation. Contact them for more details.
