The phone has been ringing off the hook. I'm now at the point that I really need to hire two part time helpers. Got my deposit ths morning for the plant materials for 1st phase of the landscape install at a high school I'm doing. Getting a lot of calls for drainage and irrigation work. Really need to get my website back up.

Been a busy week. Work is steadily rolling in. Should find out Monday if I got the weekly mowing of a small apartment complex, bring in an extra $1k month. Easy to mow(one of those, where u could spray a 1ft roundup ring around all the buildings and sidewalks lol). Also had a homebuilder I did work for a few years ago, call me today to take over cutting 101 empty lots (every 6 weeks) in one of their developments. Time to go eat some boiled seafood and drink some beer!!!
