How do you guys handle the spring rush? For about the next 2.5 months we are so over loaded with mulching and landscape installs that theres not enough hours in the week. I currently have 2 full time employees. With as much work as we have untill the end of June I have enough work for about 4 employees. My problem is that come mid july things go back to normal and 2 employees is plenty to ge all the work completed. Im curious as to how other companys manage this problem? Its very easy to say "oh just hire more guys for the time being". Not that easy....I do have a heart and hate to lay guys off mid year who are depending on me to support there family. teenagers in this are are not an option......they are to spoiled by mommy and daddy to even consider doing a day of hard work. As the landscape design/install side of my business continues to flurish every spring is getting tougher and tougher to get so much work done in a 2 month window.
