Adverse weather management

On this snowy wet morning and mixed weather forecast ahead it got me thinking How do others manage their work schedule during prolonged spells of adverse weather ? Do you still contact customers to point out the bad weather and re schedule or take it for granted they can see for themselves ? Do you make a courtesy call ? Catch up with office work ? Sharpen and maintain tools ? Do you turn up regardless ?or just enjoy the down time ?

Any advice?

A client has asked us to buy a specimen shrub - he's fallen for one that is basically going to cost the best part of £1000 by the time we get it to Wiltshire. It is to replace one that has been killed by the previous gardeners pruning it in the winter. While I feel reasonably comfortable with doing this, I wonder if any of you have hints and tips?   .... I do not want to go the way of the previous gardeners when the client is absolutely up for spending £1K on a single mature shrub.Thanks Adam

Sit on mower

Hi allI'm considering buying a sit on mower. I have 3  flatish lawns about 1 acre total all on one site. I only plan using it solely for this site in a secure compound.

It pays to shop around

It pays to shop around as we all know. So here is my story from the last three days.The deck on my Stiga 740 pwx is older than the machine itself, being the one from the previous 740. So the deck, a Combi 100 EL has done over 1100 hours. 1100 hours of at times, very hard working conditions in old ‘up and down’ churchyards etc. It has been completely trouble free.On Wednesday the deck itself fractured at the rear corner and the rear support came away with a portion of deck casing. There was no…

"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."
