    here we go again. when water restrictions go into effect, no one wants to have landscape install jobs done. at least we are getting good rains to keep mowings going , but the coin is in install. no snow this winter either. here in frederick county md they also halted all house building permits for one year. droughts hurt almost all business's. anyone else feeling the pains from droughts.

    we are 15 inches below normal here, and certain towns and cities already have watering bans. hopefully we can get some decent rains.

    In recent years we have had water restrictions. Last year we had a complete watering ban in effect.It hurt everyone from pool and hot tub operaters to irragation companies,and of course our industry. Now we have had more rain than we need. Good luck

    Know the feeling, my business is mostly in Howard and Carroll counties in Maryland. 70% of my ressies irrigate. We'll see how these rains go this season :cry:

    Stop your crying Scott! 0% of my ressies (which is all I do) have irrigation. :( Don't worry.. The rains will come.

    Scott... wanna get rid of anything? I have a couple of slots to fill.
