Pic time! Here's a tiny job we did recently. The homeowner had a drainage problem around the foundation so we came in and extended some existing drainage swales to make them go around the problem areas around the foundation of the house. The homeowner was seeding and fertilizing the swales as I was packing up to leave!

More hand work than machine work:

Is it naturally hilly there or just the overburden from putting the marsh in?

It's a mix- this was hilly because this bog was created in an old sand pit. Other bogs aren't as hilly since they rest in natural swamps.

One way or the other we will be staying busy with snow work or land clearing projects. Whether its 5 days a week or 1-2, that's still to be decided. Snow contracts are very late in being decided this year in my area. It doesn't appear to matter if you do $5million or $5,000 per year in snow, very few contracts have been decided so far. I have 3 large properties outstanding, with several more that have yet to bid. One way or the other, we will be plowing though. Also, we have several leads on land clearing projects that can be completed in the winter as well. Things are still very soft right now, but we are optimistic and are planning accordingly.

Sounds like you have a good plan. My plan right now is not turning away any work.
