Landscaping Crews Getting To Work


With the snow behind us, landscaping companies are rallying to make up for lost time this spring. For many, Monday is the first full day their workers are able to get in the yard. 

The sun is out and the snow is pretty much gone. That means Nicholas Pommersheim and his team can get to some landscaping. 

“It’s nice to be able to play in the dirt, have the option of actually building stuff and seeing it come to life. I love this job,” Pommersheim said. 

The D & K Lawn Care crew is tearing out and redoing a patio this week. Owner Dan Pyle says it’s work that would have been started in March if the weather would have cooperated. 

“Typically, we start that third, fourth week of March is the typical but I guess April is the new December,” Pyle said. 

Of course, last week, they were using plows to clear out all that snow. Now, they’re finally in the yard doing what they signed up for. 

“Definitely signed up for this, not the snow. I know there’s a lot I work with that get excited about the snow although this time of year I think everyone’s a bit tired of it. This is what I’m here for,” Pommersheim said. 

The plows will likely be coming off the trucks at the end of the week as the business shifts into full spring gear. 

“It’s time to turn the page and get into spring and summer soon I’m feeling. We’re going to be starting doing the lawns here later on this week when we dry out. The fertilizer is starting tomorrow and the landscaping today,” Pyle said. 

Before you know it, we’ll be surrounded by fields of green.
