Happy Winter, everyone. I'm really badly laid up with a herniated disc... will find out tomorrow if I have to have surgery. Been home and in pain for 15 days now. I'm going a bit crazy! Definitely worried about this coming year, but one step at a time. If there's one lesson I've learned here - TAKE CARE of your bodies! I have brutally abused and neglected my back for years and now I'm paying the price. You don't want this! Hire help, exercise and stretch. I hope I'll be ready to go this season. We are going to be swamped - either way, will be hiring! I'm done slinging every shovel of mulch and being on my hands and knees all day. Good news - we won a 2012 "Angie's List" Super Service Award for our work in the 'landscape' and 'lawn and yard work' categories here in Louisville! This should blow up our business this year. If you are not on Angie's List, I really suggest it. It is free and has brought us tons of calls and GOOD, new customers.
