Expert Industry Advice and Property Enhancement Suggestions.

Everybody loves saving a few bucks.

Buy one pizza, get one free can actually make your whole day, right?

So when customers suggest cutting a few items from their commercial landscaping contract, we get it.

But unlike that pizza, cutting landscaping services isn’t necessarily a good deal. (Also, there’s no pepperoni involved, which makes things even worse.)

It can actually cost you more in the end.

Here’s how:

As Level Green Landscaping switches from mowing and weeding to clearing snow and de-icing pavement, Covid-19 cases continue to rise.

That means the safety precautions we’ve taken since the beginning of the pandemic are still in full swing, with extra measures for snow season.

Or lined up to share office manager Lynn Garris’ savory pulled pork.

Brad Butler, manager of corporate safety at Level Green Landscaping, talks about the additional PPE that’s now part of our safety routine.
