    I want to get an idea of what all the area companies are charging for labor? I have raised my labor rate to $35 per hr. I just want to stay of the same playing field as the others. I all so need some one to build a deck?

    What city do you need the deck in? I know a few deck guys that are good.
    We only do irrigation, my understanding of what Landscapers are charging you should be in line with that number. Especially with gas prices being the way they are. If you ever need any irrigation services (install/service work) give me a call @ 800.435.4979. Bob RI Lawn Sprinkler Systems (Reserve Irrigation)

    Looking at my records from last year I am about 2.5 weeks behind on bidding new installs. What about you other guys in the area?

    There must not be a lot of Cleveland area companies on this site. I was hoping for a greater turn out. So much for the networking in the Cleveland area. :sleeping:

    We just started going on estimates for new installs. We try to hold off until the weather breaks eventhough people call in Febuary they are usually just shopping and don't make a decision until mid to late March anyway. How is everyone's else doing so far compared to last year? We are about two and a half weeks behind.

    Do you smell that, spring is here. It is time to maintenance the machines and to come out of hibernation. I can not wait to get started. If you are reading this and you are from Cleveland reply so we can keep it towards the top of the list.
