Hey Tim, didn't you get a trailer full of mulch last year, or that's what you were looking for? Wish I had the room and equipment to buy that much bulk. But........... then ya gotta know you're gonna get rid of it too!!

Yes we went through alot of trailer loads last year.

I am always looking.

We used Benoit, SJAP, and OCRC.
OCRC made a deal with us in May and we used them for the rest of the year.

I attended a class about snow management where a weatherman said that when it snows very early, the total snowfall for that year tends to be less than average. No one was too thrilled about this news, since we had a huge October storm here in New Jersey. Tons of damage - and not one flake since.

dealing with low-ball competitors

I hear this all the time - how to deal with people who work at lower prices. A couple of classes here have instructors who talk about this, and they say you need to sell your clients on the idea "you get what you pay for." But it's a tough thing to do. I've seen a couple of very successful guys talk about it, though, (Chris James at Chris James landscaping, David Beausoleil of Cast Ligting) and this is some of what they say (only with more detail).

Business Strategies and Pricing

Chris James is teaching a class about this very topic on Monday, Common Sense Business and Pricing Strategies For Landscape Contractors. He runs a huge business in North Jersey - I've seen him before and he's a straight-talking guy who tells it like it is.
