I think one of the toughest things about growing a business is keeping your enthusiasm high and also passing that on to your employees.
Anyways after visiting several restraunts and my hotel I commented to my wife about how several of the places we ate and stayed were not well kept. As far as the landscape maintenace goes.
What kinds of things caught your attention?
Just smaller things that arent that big of a deal probably but start to add up.
Poor weed control in some of the beds but frequently.
Improperly pruned shrubs or some just left with long parts just hanging out obvious.
I saw rings around single shrubs and trees where there should have been just mulch with lava rock in them. And the rock was all mixed in the grass in a areas that are not near rockways.
Would it be bad to be talking to a manager and say something along the lines like - I was wondering if you are aware of the unkept condition of the landscape.- When trying to put a bid in a property. Address those issues and sell how you would keep those in proper order.
