Do most landscapers stay busy throughout the summer? This is my first full year. I had done it part time in the past, so I just took off the hot summers. I thought things would at least slow down over the summer, but right now we just keep getting jobs. I am booked out through the first week of july right now. I know once august gets here people start to thing about landscaping much more, so I am now worried about the rest of the season. Reason why I am asking is because I need to hire another employee. I just hired someone a few weeks ago, and I would really like to hire someone else so that I can get rid of some of the subcontractors. I would also like to get someone hired for the fall, because I know I will be swamped. We do sod installs, landscaping, a few ponds, and we are trying to get into lighting more.
