I just wanted to pass this info along to the members who frequent this group. I had my landscape trailer stolen some time overnight from the front of my home in Granbury. It is a black 16ft tandem landscape trailer. Pipe top, cracked right taillight and the license plate (which has most assuredly been taken off) was bolted to the top left corner of the tailgate. 4ft. expanded metal sides. Had two toro consumer model push mowers, a 52" cut Gravely ZTR on it. Also had an Echo SRM230 and PAS265 trimmer hanging in the trimmer racks. It's a total longshot but if anyone should happen to see something matching this description rolling around the DFW area, please call the police and let me know. 817-304-1820. Thanks a bunch guys.

Mowingman,

I finaly went with Hoskiss in dallas, price was right.. thanks for the recommendation.

well the season is starting and I have my liquid and granular items... now just working on a 6, 8, 12 month applicaiton program. Was going to work with Lesco, but now will be working with GreenSmiths in Frisco. Product is good and prices are right... Anybody else doing apps yet?
Have you thought about direct mail?

This is some BS. I need some warm weather before we starve. I have hardly done anything since before Christmas. I was hoping to have a couple more landscape jobs done before it gets too busy but the contractors are behind also.

What are y'all up to

We had all sleet that seemed to stay on the ground forever but the freezing rain/ice started between you and I.
It seems I am loosing commercial maintenance contracts left and right this year. How in the heck or people that say they are legit working so cheap. If the irrigation and pesticides do not work out I may have to find a job. After 19 years I hate to even think about it but I am not going to kill myself to barely break even, and some I do not know how they are even breaking even.

I fully understand. I sold over half my biz the first of this year, and kept my best accounts. There is always a new bunch of idiots coming along that don't know how to run a calculator it seems.
