Kicking of the Morning Right

Joe starts his day by reviewing the schedule, and discussing each lawn needs with the manager, Dave. Any lawns that are experiencing issues would be discussed in depth, focusing on finding a solution. Weather and traffic can also be discussed. Rain can a big issue in Florida, a lot of rain can alter the course of treatment. He then checks to make sure that he has the chemicals needed for the day and heads to his first job. Having a game plan of the day is crucial in lawn maintenance.

He will look for weed and disease pressure, and note any conditions that require attention. He will check out the shrub and trees on the property as well. making sure that they stay in good health. Then, he would try and make contact with the customer to discuss the service of the day. Also to educate the customer of any issues that they may see, such as the grass being cut to short or watering issues. If no one is home, which happens often, the office will make contact with the customer describing any issues he noticed on the property and/or the treatments he applied to their lawn.

Mid-day, is time for lunch—a great time to unplug for a bit and recharge for an afternoon of servicing lawns. After that, Joe wil touch base with the office to get any updates about the properties we’ll service next. If Joe is ahead of schedule, he will find out whether additional customers can be added to the day’s route.

After the day’s route is completed, Joe will return to the office to unload the truck, clean up his vehicle and equipment, then briefly review the next day’s schedule. At this time, he would discuss the day with management and advise if any chemicals need to be purchased.
