Whenever I get the chance to talk with landscapers, I jump at the opportunity — even if that means melting away in the North Carolina heat.
Last week, I attended a John Deere customer fly-in event in Cary, North Carolina. I, along with about 50 landscapers, toured their factory, talked with product managers and operated equipment — from mowers to CTLs.
But the best part of the event for me, and many of the landscapers, was participating in roundtable discussions.
Being surrounded by such a vast wealth of industry knowledge reminded me, yet again, how important you, our readers, are to our magazine.
Topics ranged from maintenance schedules to dealer relationships, and it was interesting to hear about everyone’s experiences and opinions. Being surrounded by such a vast wealth of industry knowledge reminded me, yet again, how important you, our readers, are to our magazine.
So, let’s keep the discussions going, whether it be on our website or Facebook and Twitter pages. Chances are, you’ll find other landscapers who are having the same issues — and some who have the solutions.
