Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

Are You Landscaping Your Back Yard?

by Lee Porter

Is this the summer that you are finally going to make your back yard like something you would find in a house and garden magazine? Perhaps you are planning a special event, maybe something like your daughter's wedding reception or a family reunion event, that will be held in your back yard. Whatever the reason that you are making big changes in the landscaping, from designing different areas to arranging for tree trimming, here are some ideas that might help you. 

Different Areas - As you plan the landscaping design of your back yard, consider making a simple sketch on paper. In fact, you might even consider using colored construction paper as you put your ideas onto a large poster board. For example, use pink construction to designate a place where you will establish something like a rose garden. If you want to include a vegetable garden in the landscape design, consider using green construction paper to make that designation. Will there be a patio as part of the landscaping? If so, you could use gray construction paper for that area.

After you have made your design out of construction paper, you will be able to see if you need to make changes. For example, the pink rose bush area might be dominating the yard. The great part about using construction paper is that you can move things around and adapt your design even before you start doing the actual landscaping. Think about putting the poster board on an easel and studying it for a couple of days. 

Tree Trimming - Are you lucky enough to have beautiful shade trees in your back yard? If so, those trees might benefit from being trimmed. Have you ever been to a beach town, maybe South Padre Island, Texas, where there are huge and beautiful oleander trees everywhere you turn? If so, you might have noticed that some of them have been trimmed to give them the appearance of a Bonsai tree. Do you have trees that could be given that same appearance? Talk about adding drama to your landscaping!

If you feel confident in trimming the trees in your back yard yourself, go for it. Otherwise, consider hiring professions to do the job for you. By doing so you will be hiring individuals who have been trained and who have experience in trimming your trees, not only for the beauty they will achieve but to make them healthier.
