Life of a small business is hard work but you can have fun as well. In this, we will be blogging about our ups and downs of running a lawn service, Snow Company and/or just day to day to day operations.

Where has the time gone? We went weeks with no snow and now we have had back to back to back storms. We are looking to break a snowfall total this month. Tomorrow we are going to get 6 to 8 inches then on Saturday about the same.

On an up note, the sun is out longer and that can’t be a bad thing.

In the next few weeks, we are going to be working on getting our Summer contracts. That’s right I said it, SUMMER!!!!! We Can’t Wait!!!!!

Is there something you want us to do this Summer? New mulch, Fertilizer, new plants, a new yard???  let us know if there is something you want to make your property shine.

I cannot believe it is the new year, 2018 flew by so fast. But in 2019 should be a lot of fun. We are looking at expanding our Fertilizing and our Landscaping sides of the company.

Today we are going to be taking some pictures for the company. We are going to have all of our trucks out and it should look great. The nice thing about it today is that the weather should be nice out. For January 40 deg is a heat wave. This weather is so weird. One moment it is -10 deg then it is 40 deg. We have gotten more rain this winter than snow. I think the south has gotten more snow than us. who knows???

Thank you for reading and if you have any questions please let us know.

Well, it just snowed then rained. Snow and rain, does not make it a fun day to work. We shoveled more water than snow. What a weird day!!!! All the work got done so when everything froze there were no lumps.

The new year is just a few days away. What was 2018 like for you? Let me know.

For us, we bought a building and we are trying to grow the company. We are going to get into hardscape. If you don’t know what that is, it is retaining walls and paver patios. We want to expand into more landscaping and hardscapes would be a key. Who knows it might work out and it might not.

Like always thank you for reading.

If you have any questions please let us know.

Today is the shortest day of the year and the first day of Winter. From this day on the days will get a little bit longer. That is a good thing if you want some more light.

Went down the office and our Four Wheeler has a gas leak.  The whole building smelled like gas. Good thing we found that out now and not during a snowstorm.

News on our building is that it is so nice to have. We have the ability to grow and grow with it. We have spent the last few weeks organizing the shop area. It is so nice to have it organized. From the first day we moved in we had been working a lot. With that, we did not have the time to organize. Now that it is organized and new lights put up we can show people the area and not be embarrassed about it. Hopefully, in the spring we can have an open house to show everyone our new place.

Where has the time gone? This fall really did not happen. This is what I mean by did not happen. The trees did change color, then it got cold and they all fell off within a few days not weeks they were all gone. If you remember spring was the same way. It feels like this year we got two seasons Winter and Summer. I enjoy those two seasons but I do like seeing fall and spring.

This Winter we are salting a more efficient way.

Did you just say there is a more efficient way??

Yes, I did, this is what I mean. We invested in a liquid brine sprayer and a brine maker from a company called Voit Smith Innovation (Click here to go to their website)This way we can spray it before and after storms to help the snow from sticking to the surface.

Picture this you own a building or are visiting a building and we had sprayed the sidewalks and the parking area. You don’t see anything or and most importantly you are not tracking stuff into your building. Once Brine is sprayed it is working. you cannot kick it around and it will be there for the next snow. Watch this video.

Thanks for reading and watching.
