  • Strange season

    I got an e-mail off my web site today a customer looking for a yard clean up and shrub pruning.
    Its Dec 20th 5 days away from the big day and we are still able to do this kind of work.
    Its so strange I should be plowing snow not pruning shrubs.
    I just shake my head and go do my job money is money and I really could use with some right now.

            It is a very strange season. We were doing gutter cleanings last week, which is unheard of. Normally our first snow fall is always around Thanksgiving. Looking ahead in the forecast there is nothing at all for at least another 10 days or so.

            Actually may go out next week and install a landscape lighting system for a client.

              Well did the job this morning. Man did it ever feel good to be on a lawn again.
              to bad its just one job But the customer is a member of the street association and really liked my work so she is going to post my information on their web site as highly recommended. There is about 30 homes on the street so this is a real cool development. I kind of feel like Hedge you never know where your next customer might come from.

                  Its the same here in North west Montana we should have a foot or more by now. The most we have had on the ground is about a half inch, and after yesterdays "Rain" there is nothing. I have my snow adds out still but I'm focusing more on Fall Clean up stuff like gutters, and yards right now.

                      Steve I love it when you tell me positive things, each time you do good things seem to happen.
                      I was at a get together and had a chat with a property management guy that was there with his wife, He is looking for someone to do Sidewalks and entrance ways for 5 Apt complex's, He will be in contact with me next week.
                      Now all I need is some snow.
