Snow is in the forecast again, click the link to read our most recent campaign discussing the 2011-2012 winter snow and ice season:
In 2010, Pacific Landscape Management joined an industry "Peer Group" with six other companies from across the country. These companies are some of the premiere landscape organizations in the United States: Mariani Landscape, Chicago IL, HighGrove Partners, Atlanta GA, Heads Up Landscape Contractors, Albuquerque NM, Lambert's, Dallas TX, StayGreen, Santa Clarita CA, and Enviroscapes, Louisville OH. The goal of our group is to work together to support each other to continue to grow and develop to the "next level".
The owners of each company meet three times annually, share our organizational and financial plans, and challenge each other to make improvements that will benefit our customers, employees and organizations. Starting last year we created the Next Level University, bringing 130 owners and managers from seven companies together to share and learn on subjects involving production management, customer service, sales, performance measurements, and personal development.
Monday through Wednesday this week, the PLM management team is in Atlanta at Next Level University 2012. See the link that follows written today by a local industry trade publication.
We received lots of positive feedback regarding our snow and ice services performed during this last snow storm and would like to share a few comments:
"Thank you for your great proactive service and for keeping us informed of the costs."
-Kim Schoenfelder of KG Investment Management
"I just want to tell you how pleased I was to hear that your crew didn't come out earlier (per your broadcast email) I didn't think there was enough snow to warrant it. So first of all...good call (plus security said response time was great [after they called in for services.]) Secondly, thanks for laying down minimal amount of gravel. Three... Thanks for the branch cleanup. The campus looks a hundred times better without all the limbs scattered about. Really appreciate the care."
-Jennifer Otterness of Novellus
"The parking lot and sidewalks seem to be very well taken care of this morning. Thanks!"
-Rick Lauricella of Acumed

Following our never ending quest to be innovative, we experimented with baling leaves. As with grass or straw, the baler compressed the leaves nearly 4:1 compared with vacuuming them. Although the bailer did not pick up all the leaves and we need to find an efficient method of picking up the bales, we plan to continue to experiment with this and other methods to improve our efficiency and lower costs for our customers.
