Spring is always the best feeling, especially when the phone calls for new work come in.

Spring sucks after a winter like this. I need a couple months to recover before the calls start coming in.

Def not a 'relaxing' winter for sure, but it is nice to finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just returned from an appointment today, but was a little difficult to do any measuring considering there is still at least a foot of snow on their yard!

But glad we have finally turned the corner..... well, except for this coming wknd.!

Seems so late this year.
Last year we started our first install less than two weeks from today. Plow Damage and stakes were picked up and already taken care of by now iirc.

Biggest problem is with snow still around everyone is just now starting to think maintenance contracts.

I went from no bites to new estimates daily now. To think I was getting calls in February last year. Post cards aren't going out until the first week of April now. Thankful this winter is coming to a close.
