Mike,
The sandpit off new london turnpike is owned by Cardi Corporation.....I need to take a ride back there and see what he has. I will work on the e-mail list tomorrow, i've been busy with stuff here at the house, never ending battle! As far as NE Grows, I will be going up there on Thursday with a buddy of mine. We are gonna drive up because we wanna hit up a couple places after the show. Couple pretty good classes to go to, im excited.
How much was it to join the Contractors Assoc?
Alan

As far as the RI contractors board. the way it was explained to me by two people in the office was = if you do anything other than mow trim blow prune or maintain what is there you need to be registered. I asked well what about mulch. they said if you cut new or create mulch beds you have to be registered as its considered contruction.

Im registered, i think it helps sell when you can tell people you are registered.

Is that property the same ne as the guy on CL trying to rent open space down there? Sounds good. Could be a co-op thing.....


Al, i think i was in your hood the other day droping off some ice melt to one of my customers. whats wit that big chunk of land off nl tp. old sand pit?

Ferris, hows that email list coming?

Mike.
I pretty sure you can cut new beds, technically the problem comes in if you put timbers in to line the bed or some other kind of edging - it was explained to me by the same office that if it grows, you can touch it.

I'm mostly resting, but I almost have my letters ready to go out with new pricing and my new fertilizer program, got new biz cards ready - content to build word of mouth.

Hey kiddo, nice job on the website!!! Just one little thought. The whole site seems to personal and professional, I really like it, clean and neat just like the way you leave someone yard - think about changine our contractors to our personal.
