    My company, Queen Landscapes Inc. has been around since '87, I've been in the business since high school...'78-'81
    I used to do everything with 4-7 employees but have scaled back now because they are such a pain in the ...
    I work for some high end businesses and homeowners who I have dealt with for over 20 years.

    Weather is usually great. We don't get enough rain days to get our office work done:laugh: But temps are usually mild in winter and get a little hot in the summer.Humidity is bad so I'm told. I've never lived anywhere else.

    Yup, I used to do 17 BB&Ts. they switched to a company out of Florida who sub contracted to local LCOs. Their reason was so they would only have to cut one check a month(to the company out of Florida).I know 2 other companies who we given the boot as well. The people in the glass towers only see numbers on paper. I still do work for some of the branch managers homes and you should hear some of the horror stories. I just chuckle when I drive by and see the condition of the branches. Are you the Co. who takes care of the Med. offices next door? I'll stop by and say hello sometime.I also take care of the Oncology center across the street. Small world huh!
