Well I got a call from another blower company today. Apparently his truck went down and he needs help desperatly... Dont we all. So looks like my slow season will be held off a little while longer. We also pretty much landed a contract with a large school district to put down around 700 yards of playground material before the end of june. Things are going to be crazy around hear while we try and get all of that done as well as wrap up on our other large clients... But I would say our quility of work and effeciancy have improve almost 70% this year. It is funny, every where I go I look at the mulch jobs people are doing and I start nitpicking it all... Oh that edge is not clean enfough or they forgot to clean off the plants or sidewalks. Well I am off to bed hope every one continues having good seasons!

Got wacked here in oakland county sunday by storm. Most LCO'S on my street are picking up debris for the price of a cut. I thought debris removal was EXTRA $$$$. I'm a homeowner and i understand that.

Well It's been awhile since I 've been on too. So hows it going guys. I'm busy, busy, busy. Tired, Tired, Tired!!!!!!
In another week or two I can actually take a weekend off. Seems like everyweek somebody asks for work to be done. Thats good but I need a break. I hope everyone else is staying busy too.

I wanna let everyone know my final count on new clients from the flyers also. 27 is what I picked up this year. I picked up 2 a couple weeks ago.

Well Good Luck.


Ryan, You out there. Let me know about that Hustler.
