Protecting your customer's property from rain water and runoff is a high priority - and a great incremental business opportunity for you! If proper water drainage is not installed, then stormwater runoff can puddle near downspouts and in yards, flower beds or other planting areas - causing damage to structures, landscapes, and hardscapes. Watch this video to see various options for properly managing runoff water using NDS's full line of drainage products: catch basins, channel drains, Flo-Well® dry wells, and pop-up emitters. For more information on these and other NDS products, give us a call. Turf Equipment stocks the full-line of NDS drainage products. There is also great info at: www.ndspro.com.
Although it seems like the rain will never stop, we have turned the calendar to October and begin the fall season. It is time to look at your tools and make sure you have new leaf rakes for your crew, contractor trash bags, and netting for your customer's ponds.
