    What things have you guys done this year to up production? New software, growth regulators, modify equipment etc. Flex Deck actually brought this up a while back and now I'm curious as well. Anything you'll change next year?

    A couple years ago we intalled GPS units on the trucks. We download them once per week or two. I think its kept the guys from slacking off and made them more accountable for their production.
    A lot of our landscape maintenance is time and material. This certainly verifies time spent at properties. As well as for snow removal times.
