Managing Urban Runoff
With the Record Strong El Niño predicted in the U.S. for 2015-2016, we should all be prepared!
What Homeowners Can Do
To decrease polluted runoff from paved surfaces, households can develop alternatives to areas traditionally covered by impervious surfaces. Porous pavement materials are available for driveways and sidewalks, and native vegetation and mulch can replace high maintenance grass lawns. Homeowners can use fertilizers sparingly and sweep driveways, sidewalks and roads instead of using a hose. Instead of disposing of yard waste, they can use the materials to start a compost pile. And homeowners can learn to use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) to reduce dependence on harmful pesticides.
In addition, households can prevent polluted runoff by picking up after pets and using, storing and disposing of chemicals properly. Drivers should check their cars for leaks and recycle their motor oil and antifreeze when these fluids are changed. Drivers can also avoid impacts from car wash runoff (e.g., detergents, grime, etc.) by using car wash facilities that do not generate runoff. Households served by septic systems should have them professionally inspected and pumped every three to five years. They should also practice water conservation measures to extend the life of their septic systems.

With the increased demand for quality Landscape estimators and the need to cut overhead costs, Landscape Takeoff Service and Landscape Estimating Service was created. Let's face it, all Landscape contractors need to bid more
work these days to stay in business, but with the economy the way it is, we all have to be very careful with our overhead costs. An experienced Landscape estimator cost most Landscape businesses $60,000.00 up to a $110,000.00 per year
or more. That means you have to install over $600,000.00 worth of new work to just pay for your new estimator.
We offer a better solution!. Your company can utilize an estimator that has over 28 years of Public Works & Commercial Landscape experience, the latest takeoff & estimating hardware and can be used when ever you need him. If you have enough work and don't want to bid for a while, don't use us... we can work per the quoted proposal or by the hour!
Plus you don't have to purchase the expensive software and hardware that it takes for precise estimating.
