We have had a helluva past 6 months! We never finished our fall ferts or clean-ups. Winter was good for snow removal, but it wouldn't go away early enough. We started our "spring" 3-4 weeks late too. Then we lost another week to more snow and rain ! We're behind on clean-ups (will be done by week's end)! behind on fertilizing (pre-M app + lime apps done by mid next week) waaaaayyyyyyyy behind on mulch - no end in sight till mid-June landscaping - doing maybe $4K/week as all above is killing us! - we're currently booking into mid-late June. I know I'm not alone in this as all of my fellow LCO competitors in the area are experiencing the same problems. I find that I have been pushing my staff and myself especially a little harder this year. When the weather is good we average 55 hour weeks. I hate paying all of the OT cause it eats away the profits, but we have to try to get the jobs done in a timely fashion. Thanks for letting me rant a little. Rodfather, Bobbygedd, others in this area - how are you guys doing??
