It’s surprising how many times we get asked the question “what do New Hampshire landscapers do in winter?”
I can’t speak for other companies, but Giant Landscaping is just as busy in the winter as any other time of the year. In fact, 40% this landscape company’s business happens in four months out of the year with our snow and ice management services.
If our crews aren’t out pushing snow during a blizzard, we are applying salt, moving snow piles, and inspecting our clients’ properties to ensure that they are safe and problem-free.
In the office, our design team is working on landscape design plans that were on the table when the ground froze. Planning these landscape installations – especially the larger ones – takes a priority during the winter months at Giant Landscaping. Jeff is busy in the office reviewing the contracts for the upcoming 2015 season and meeting with clients about scheduling their landscape projects.
Tim has got his hands full, overseeing the snow and ice management services – and the onslaught of equipment repairs that always come with commercial plowing services. Tim and Jeff take inventory of the landscaping tools and power equipment – what needs to be maintained and what needs to be replaced.
When the schedule permits, our hard-working snowplowing crews attend winter hardscaping seminars to further their knowledge and give Giant Landscaping a competitive edge in creativity and price.
Katie, of course, is busier than ever. In addition to running the office, billing, and dispatch duties that she performs throughout the rest of the year, Katie gathers all the year-end bookkeeping data for the accountant. And she does it all with a smile!
Running a landscaping company in New Hampshire provides us a lot of variety through all four seasons. We wouldn’t have it any other way!
