Rain, rain go away…or don’t! Sometimes rainy days offer a unique opportunity for landscape contractors to catch up around the office and warehouse. After all, spring is the busiest time of year for estimate requests for our customers, so we know landscape contractors are busy meeting customers and preparing proposals, all the while starting up their services for the season.
So what happens when it rains? Does everything stop? Do landscapers get ‘rained-out’?
Not a chance!
12 Things Landscapers do When it Rains
- Clean their warehouse
- Organize inventory
- Label new equipment
- Schedule jobs
- Take debris from jobs off-site
- Clean the interior of their trucks
- Work on machinery
- Sharpen lawn mower blades
- Spring clean-ups

- And last but not least…bidding! Measure properties for landscape estimates online. It’s always sunny at Go iLawn.
