We are working in the rain. We are booked 7 days a week for the last 7 weeks. No time for makeup work. Seem to be further behind every week. Time for more help.

More power to you, I'm glad you're that busy. Were starting to pick up now, but not seven days yet.

It'll be a couple of 10 - 12 hr days to catch up...:drinkup:

Started as strictly tree but the company has evolved over the years to include lawn and landscape. We do alot of commercial and government work. We stick to strictly high end customers for our residential customers. We stand out from the five million lco in miami by our professionalism, insurance and certifications.

Gotchya, that's cool. When you say high-end, are we talking big estates? $1-K/mo.+? That is what I do, high-end resi. IMO the only way to go.

Wow nice. How big a property is that 8-K/month? How long have you been in biz?

It is a just over 5 acres. Takes between 80 and 100 man hours per month but includes alot of detail stuff and pest controll, which we sub out. The property was landscaped from scratch about two years ago for around 2 million. We took over after that was done.

We have been in business for eight years.

That's what I figured about the property. What year did your company make big strides? I'm hoping to have a breakout year this year(I'm in year 4).

That's also impressive your getting 80-100/MH on a property of that size.
