A Note from Scott and Marsha
January 10, 2019
For 2019, I'm pretty excited about all the things we have going on. It is simply going to be amazing. I know I'm partial but I simply can't help myself. We are deep into a new landscape software that will change us for the future. Do you know what else I'm excited about and partial to? This girl. This young woman. This partner in crime. Viridian, our Landscape Administrator. For you hooked on phonics people, sounds like Vee'dee dyan. "V" for short.  When this software was first considered, I can't describe the anxiety that came over me. I'm all about some improvements.   Some. Not all . So as Scott and I rolled around in the yard hashing out my every possible reason this was a terrible idea and I did mean terrible idea, Viridian sweetly sits and waits until it is her turn to speak. And then do you know what she did? SHE TURNED ON ME! She took his side. Insert my audible shock here. I was like, "Wwwwwhhhhaaaaatttt did you say? I thought we were FRIENDS!" These days "whipper snappers" roll with technology changes far easier than some of us can. So guess what we did? Viridian is the proud torch-carrying guru of our new software and is learning it inside and out. I'm so proud of her. She has spent countless hours watching videos, chatting with the help desk, asking questions, putting together our "how to" system and procedures. She is absolutely the right person for such a time as this. She keeps us calm. She answers our questions. She never gets excited or rattled. She is sane and she keeps us sane. I love her so much I just want to get up from desk and squeeze her. If you haven't met her in our offices or in the Garden Center on a busy Saturday, you are simply missing out. She has a heart of gold. So, here's a public declaration of our adoration and appreciation to you, Viridian. Give her a call and you will see she is another one who loves helping you bring green home!  
We know how busy you are! Allow us to take lawn maintenance off your plate.
