    Yes it does you will be there sooner than you think thou Tom. That project should have been done in two days. Mother Nature has not been kind we were out there yesterday in the mud. What a freakin mess create more work.
    I think you should focus on the installs.

    This weather has for sure put a damper on work. I hate working in the rain/mud. Makes the job look sloppy and just a real PITA. I will try my hardest to focus on installs

    A wise man told me that I couldn't do both. So far he is some what right. I have had to hire on a few more F/T and P/T guys. We are getting through it, but man the headaches that come with it. I know from talking to you on the site you will manage and GET R DUN (Did I spell correctly?) You know if you ever have ANY questions that I can help you with just ask.

    I was planning on doing installs monday and tuesday, possibly part of wednesday to finish up, and the rest of the days for lawn maintenance. So far, got like maybe a days worth of grass cutting. Kinda sux, but it is only my first year. It is spelled GIT R DONE!!! Thanks so much Josh, if I need help I will for sure give you a shout!!:waving:

    That is the way it is turning for me so far. Everything but lawn maint. That is ok though, it pays more payup

    Thats is what we are working our schedule around Landscape beginning of the week and mowing near the end with one or two days to run and bid. Most of my customers want it close to the weekend anyway. Closer to Sat the more the price per cut. I had alot fo Pre paid this yeat as well for mowing. That create some capitol for the old buisness and tha OLD man.:laugh:

    I wish I could get some prepaid stuff. Only on snowplow contracts do I get that lucky. Yeah, most people want their stuff done later in the week so the lawn looks good for the weekend. Getting captiol for the business and the old man is always a good thing!!
