The most important reason to have a robot mow your lawn isn’t so you look like the coolest business in town.

Still, it’s not a bad reason, right?

Others, not so great. Like when your commercial property’s lawn dies, and you have to dip into your already stretched budget to replace it. Surprise!

On days like that, ice cream helps. Better yet, add a few key commercial landscaping services into your contract to help avoid those unpleasant surprise costs.

So, if you’re a tulip fan (who isn’t?) it’s kind of exciting to get a peek at the tulip order that branch manager James Kole placed last year for his Level Green Landscaping customers.

What tulips does a pro order?

Let’s take a look. Then we’ll share some tantalizing tulip tips.
