Did you think you’d ever look back with nostalgia at the drought? It’s a relief for those of us whose business relies so heavily on water to see the heavy rains finally fill the lakes, but there are times even we are ready to beg for a little sunshine. Vagabunda, our resident corporation yard cat, thick winter coat notwithstanding, is tired of dodging raindrops. Her favorite sunny spot on the wooden pallet by the office just hasn’t been seeing enough use.
Now that better weather is upon us, the phones are already ablaze. Lots of work has been delayed, weeds are growing with a bionic mania, and five of our regular gardeners are spending their last precious days of winter break in Mexico. They’ll be back soon to join the gardeners’ version of “March Madness” played with mowers and rakes instead of basketballs. We’re ready to charge into the next busy eight month season. Call as early as you can for any late winter pruning or early irrigation checkups. Also plan ahead this year if you are considering any landscape projects around your house.
By the end of March you’ll notice new signs on all of our trucks. The governing powers put the pinch on us for not having legal signage. Our signs now show “WALDRON LANDSCAPE 996-5868”. Our upgraded and legalized signs will show “WALDRON LANDSCAPING INC. 996-5868 LIC #346260” I should back-charge the previous owner (big brother Dave) for selling me a company with illegal signs, but I’ll probably let it pass, since the trucks that came with the company are so old and rickety that the signs might keep their doors from falling off.
