April 2024

Welcome to Spring!

One thing we can always be sure of is change, and it is our adaptability as an industry that has made us great all these years. In the past 24 hours, I have seen three seasons with sunshine and warm temperatures turning to rain, sleet, snow, and then back to the sun. Think about the stress this puts on our landscapes. Think about the stress this puts on our teams!

This past month has reminded me why our industry is so strong as I watch teams rally and provide excellent snow services at odd hours and in unfavorable conditions. Underlying it all is the genuine passion to serve others that drives our teams to go out and get the job done despite the many challenges of each day. As we kick off this Spring, don’t forget to take the time to thank each part of your team, including those who work steadfastly behind the scenes to help keep everything moving. The next three months are our most challenging. They go by quickly. A simple and genuine thank you shared with your coworker could be the fuel that gets them through the next hurdle to take care of your customers.

Best wishes for a successful spring,
