People often ask “what do you do for work during the winter?” While we still have projects coming in to design and estimate, it is much quieter! It gives us time to review the previous year, make plans for improvements, and stay current with the landscape industry. This week our staff will be attending New England Grows, a three day conference and trade show for the professional landscape industry. This is the premier winter conference held in Boston each year, bringing folks in from all over New England. It’s great in the middle of the winter to get a burst of landscape energy by talking with fellow landscapers, seeing great slideshows, and visiting the trade show with booth after booth of plants and tools that make us long for the season to start. With 27 seminars and a huge exhibition there is plenty of opportunity for education and insight into the latest trends, technological advances, and business strategies. It’s a great conference that keeps us informed, educated, and competitive in the industry that we love.
