I'm surprised people are willing to travel when you fill a very small niche market in a rural area, many things that may work for you probably won't work for others, such as the leads generated from the outdoor furniture place that your family operates??

I would probably politely disagree with that mainly because I've traveled the country to see other landscape / lawn care companies who have developed their own niche's in their market area. You can come away with a lot of great ideas just by walking around and observing operations, layouts, equipment, talking with their employees, etc. I have a notebook full of things I've seen that I've either implemented, or plan to implement from some companies that have nothing to do with design / build..

I have four openings left for June.

Today Eric Long, President of EPHenry out of Woodbury NJ drove out and first hand took a look at this incredible creation stating "you guys are first class at what you do"

Their product is being installed on the flat here. Look for the project in one of their next catalogs.

I don't know much more and we are almost too busy to even think about it. The cab and chassis will be direct shipped to the fab shop in Ohio. When its done there we will go get it and have the graphics done on it here locally. That is scheduled for the first week in July. My hope is that its on the road mid july.
