First year coming to a close.

Tough margins but overall highly enjoyed this first season.

A lot of competition in your area. Funny thing is I get a call from Frisco all the time for service.

I know man. I don't ever get a call from your area. I need to get your email and will push anything from your area your way. I can't make the math add up going that far away. Next year Im mowing Thursday, Friday, Saturday and keeping Monday, Tuesday ,Wednesday for Landscaping. If I don't fill my Landscaping schedule I work harder marketing until I do.. but I'm going to keep days for each and just work on filling.

You can reach me at Chris@greenwithenvylandscapes.com.

Yeah your schedule is a lot like mine. I mow wed-friday for the most part, try not to work weekends unless I get backed up. Mon-Tues is for landscaping.

The calls I get are the tract homes, zero lot lines to 1/8 acre which I'm not set-up for. Lots of work for that demographic but also lots of low-baller competition.

Cool. Nice to meet ya. Good to know an experienced LCO also has this split schedule. I'd like to think it's the best way to optimize profit. We shall see. I got your email and will do all I can to get you some work over there. As I get more accounts I am going to attempt to pull my work even closer. I want to be that guy that makes good margin on most everything or have open slots to fill with good margin. I don't want to fill a slot with work to make a little because it all takes a toll physically I feel and I need all my energy for higher paying jobs.

What's the name "Drenched" in your company name supposed to mean? Is it a Texas thing I don't know about?

Black mulch is very popular here in Texas. I put down probably 10 times more black mulch than natural hardwood.

Yup, I have a 12 yard black mulch job next week. Thats all I use at my place. The only thing that sucks about black is anything lands in it you can see it a mile away(leaves, cig butts). I personally hate red, but some people like it.
