Business is picking up

Weather is getting warm in Florida. Picked up 2 new customers. One yesterday and one today. I was also contacted for a large subdivision bid for their common grounds. Things are looking up again already. Going to be another good year.

Feel the same. I am already giving bids to people that have been referred. It's going to be a great year in my opinion.

Things are off to a bang - picked up a new customer - have 4 sizable sod estimates to give next week, and have 4 topdressing jobs already booked.

Things will be great this year! Hopefully employment will pick up and mower in trunk prices will go away!

Last year at this time we were cold as ice. Plus drought last year means more rain this year!

Bids coming in early this year. Also started to advertising early this year!

Just place a ad myself - was thinking I might hold off, but after this week I am glad I went ahead for the March issue, the early bird gets the worm.

If the weather stays this dry there will be more money to be made after August for storm cleanup!
