This November issue marks the first anniversary of Total Landscape Care. And what a year it has been. Overall, we could not be more optimistic about the future of TLC because of the tremendous, positive response that we have received. Our Landscaper’s Dream Package attracted thousands of registrations by readers hoping to take home the grand prize package of landscaping equipment and supplies. Our innovative Landscaper of the Year program will culminate this month with an awards banquet onboard a cruise ship in the Bahamas. Our 2008 Landscaper of the Year will be featured on the cover of our January issue and all 12 finalists will have their stories featured in TLC as 2008 unfolds.
It’s one thing to have an attractive cover that compels readers to pick up and read. But we understand there has to be value on the pages inside as well. That’s why every issue we publish is jammed full of features devoted to safety, profiles of landscaping jobs from cutting-edge trends to historic landmarks with national historic significance, and reader-provided before-and-after photos of landscaping projects. In addition, you’ll find sound advice on how to more efficiently do the day-to-day tasks required in your profession. Chemical application, mowing and trimming tips, the latest in equipment and plants, and even decorating and snow removal are all part of our growing list of your informational needs.
As TLC starts year two of its existence, we have dedicated ourselves to creating the most useful publication serving landscape professionals today. It’s an ongoing process, because we realize that as the industry changes to adjust to the ever-changing demands put upon landscapers, so, too, must the information we provide to you.
Our motto when we introduced Total Landscape Care magazine one year ago was, “Grow your business with us.” Today it remains the same, but now a year later, we feel like a more valuable partner in helping grow your business.
