    We are a 1 or 2 crew (depending on the season) full service landscaping company. I am looking to network with anyone wanting to discuss subjects such as vendors, advertising, area pricing and any other business related topics that would help benefit everyone and help each other to grow. I am a big believer in networking. We have been in business since 2002 and in 2005 I joined a small local referrals group. Since that time we have grown at a very rapid pace compared to before joining. I fully understand the power that networking is capable of and am hoping to find someone like minded and have open honest conversations with about our industry. Let me know what you think!

    Hey Scout279,

    Hope you had a good 4th! We operate out of Amelia but exclusively work in Chesterfield. Business has been good so far this year with things starting to slightly slow down now which is normal for this time of year.

    What is the main type of work you mostly go after?

    We do a lot of installs. Plants, mulch, sod ect... We also have a decent maintenance rout established. Mostly all full property maintenance accounts on 12 month contracts. As you know fuel id getting to be a huge issue so we are trying to adapt the best we can.

    Anyway email me at legacyscape4u@hotmail.com if you want ton talk.
