Been a while since I've chatted with you foks. Well many of us know we've been having some tough weather for too long. My biz is less than a year old...40% of sales is mowing, rest is landscape installs, turf renovation, season color changes and holiday decorating. Mow clients are all on annual contracts but frankly making tire tracks on dormant grass is just something I wont do. My door hangar marketing for fall is getting marginal results. Some propsects have told me they have just given up on new planting for this year...and they dont want aeration and overseeding because the long term rain predictions are not encouraging for turf recvovery.. .cant blame them after 2 horrible years in a row. I plan on hanging there as I'm an older guy who understands that building a good biz takes time and hard knocks. I guess what I'm asking you for beyond 'hang in there' is some useful tactics you veterans have used to sustain your biz in tough weather times. I like what I do and my biz has a very good repuation so giving up is not an option...thanks much for your help...you folks have always been so helpful...Kitzy in PA.
