    Why are there rocks on the edge of the driveway?

    Sorry for the terribly long response! Semi Trucks like to destroy the lawn on the property otherwise!

    Well I am making it a goal to get on here much more often to kick off the 2015 season! Since I originally posted back in 2012 we have grown a lot. We are no longer Shaney's Lawn Care & Landscaping LLC, we have become Shaney's Group, Inc. with this change many new things are coming. There are Shaney's Snow & Ice Management, Shaney's Maintenance , Shaney's Hardscapes, Shaney's Landscape, and Shaney's Pond & Excavating these are all divisions under neither the group. So far the Maintenance, Landscape, and Hardscape all have full crews with room for two more in the Landscape division they do all the new lawns installations and mulch/stone bed/planting new/renovation jobs. We have been adding trucks and currently have 6 for summer use.
    I will be getting pictures up and be keeping everyone posted on projects and maintenance for the 2015 season!

    The walls are done, now its time for the patio and fire pit if it would ever dry up. Then we will clean up regrade and get the heck out!!

    The amount of growth you have had is insane! Awesome work! Did you start out all the crews or did you have guys specialized in a single field start the crew?

    When I decided to expand, and start crews I decided to find one person that specialized in that specific field and then had them tell me what they wanted for crew members under them. From there the search started, it was very hectic, not accomplishing much at first and not trusting my crew members was a huge issue. We have now settled in found all amazing guys some have come from other companies because I am willing to pay higher wages I start everyone out at 11.50 with a 60 probation that jumps up to 13.00 after 60 days. We are slowly and surly becoming an elite company in my test market region for my real goals and market area. We will most likely stay in our test market for about another year before we expand farther. But this also depends on another division of Shaney's Group, Inc. if and how well it expands for itself before we base our true pride and joy on it.
