Why We Celebrate So Much

Almost every week I get an email with pictures of smiling Yellowstone Landscape Professionals attached to it...

A safety rodeo in Bradenton.

A team building event in Houston.

A golf outing in Atlanta.

But here in our corporate headquarters, the team that supports our branches rarely get a chance to relax and enjoy each other’s company. So, to correct that, we held our first annual Summer Kickoff party on Friday, May 19th. From our chili cookoff, to some spirited games of cornhole, through the big screen tv raffle, a great time was had by all. Photos in the gallery above are from last week’s Summer Kickoff (and please, please scroll down to the bottom of the page to see our Contracts Specialist Conner’s hula hoop contest-winning performance.)

Someone recently shared an interesting observation with me about our company LinkedIn and Instagram pages. She told me that, to her, it looks like all we do is celebrate, and she wanted to know if that was okay. She was worried that people might think we’re not a hard-working company.

I suppose that’s a fair concern, but the truth is there’s a lot to celebrate in our company right now.

Yes, summer is almost here, and summer is the hardest time of year for commercial landscaping companies. Our service crews are gearing up for long, hot days. In some areas, we’re dealing with drought, while in others we’re scheduling around daily rain showers.

But when you’ve been in the commercial landscaping business for a long time, it’s what’s to be expected.

We expect to grind it out all summer. It will be hard, but it will be worth it when we see the difference we make with each service visit.

If all we ever focused on was how hard this work is, we’d never have any fun. And for those of us who’ve chosen to be Landscape Professionals, our job is supposed to be fun.

So, through the summer, we’ll continue to find reasons to celebrate.

When a branch improves their Safety Score, we’ll celebrate.

When a new client signs on with us, we’ll celebrate.

When a long-time client renews their contract, we’ll celebrate.

When one of the properties we serve is recognized with an award, we’ll celebrate.

And sometimes, just making it to a Friday afternoon will be a good enough reason for us to celebrate.
