Snow and ice still on the ground, freezing temperatures, wintry forecasts, and the calendar reminding us we just entered February, it may seem premature to discuss landscaping, irrigation, lawn care, mowing services, and those topics usually reserved for more temperate times. However, with history being the teacher, now is exactly the time to review requests for these services.
As a matter to note, of the 1,907 bid requests we identified in the past 12 months, there were 986 bids, a full 51.7% were submitted from February through May of 2015. March had the highest total with 277! If you need another example of why now is the time to act, at this moment, there are 146 active requests specifically for “landscaping” services. With more to come… *glances at calendar*.
