    Nearly $3M price tag to mow Orange County Convention Center lawn - December 3, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) - Orange County has agreed to a new 3 year contract for $2.94 million to handle lawn maintenance at the Orange County Convention Center.

    Convention Center CFO Kris Shoemaker says what they will pay for the mowing portion of the contract is very similar in rate to what a homeowner would pay for a lawn service per year.

    "Of the million dollars, $420,000 is for mowing, trimming, edging, trimming the trees and all that. At $400,000, that breaks down to about $4,000 a month."

    Shoemaker told us there is much more work to be done that just mowing and edging. While we were at the Convention Center, new plants were being planted at the main entrance to the West Building.

    "About $60,000 a year goes for mulching. Another $220,000 goes for additional plants, and that's not a guarantee. That's just if we have to replace ones like what we have here, replacements if they die out, and also another $220,000 for irrigation."

    The OCCC is required by covenant to maintain a look equivalent with the other resorts in the area. Mayor Teresa Jacobs told me that look is essential to retaining convention business.

    "This Convention Center is a huge economic driver, and not having well maintained landscaping is, would be devastating."

    Mayor Jacobs told us she believes this contract was done right and is fair.

    "We competitively bid all our contracts. We are very cost conscious."

    The Convention Center is only paying about 5 percent more for its landscaping contract than when it was last bid in 2009. They also have a $300,000 contract for lawn services like fertilization and pest control.

    Bids accepted for demolition projects - December 2, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    STERLING The city accepted low bids for the demolition of two properties included on a list of six targeted by the city in the 2014-15 fiscal year.

    The council approved a low bid of $1,399 from Jennings Excavating of Sterling to destroy the structure at 1111 Ave. A, and another of $4,545 from Tampico-based Burke Excavating to knock down the house at 906 Dillon Ave.

    The demolitions are among those in this years capital fund budget. Asbestos abatement will be done before the buildings are leveled.

    The structure at 1111 Ave. L has been vacant for 9 years, forcing the city to go through abandonment proceedings. The city has put liens of many of the abandoned properties for lawn-mowing services.

    The house at 906 Dillon Ave. was severely damaged by fire in May 2013, eventually resulting in an arrest. Juan L. Lugo, of Sterling, who had been staying with his brother at the address, was convicted of arson and sentenced to 3 years in the Department of Corrections.

    According to City Manager Scott Shumard, the house was not insured, so the rest of the structure could not be demolished by the owner. The city then obtained a demolition order from the courts.

    Mayor Skip Lee said a study was done about 5 years ago that determined 250 structures could be demolished immediately. There is a system for figuring out how high they are on the list.

    The structures are prioritized according to several criteria, with public safety being most important, Lee said. Potential for improving a neighborhood and proximity to areas with good prospects for development are also important considerations.

    Three structures on the citys demolition wish list, but not budgeted for, were also carried out recently, thanks to Sterling Today. The nonprofit development group bought the rental properties at 409 Ave. C, 411 Ave. C, and 303 W. Fifth St., because of their proximity to other properties owned by the organization.

    The Sterling Today properties were not well-maintained and are on substandard-sized lots, Shumard said. From our perspective, we were pleased to see them come down for aesthetic reasons and the good of the neighborhood.

    Inventor and InventHelp Client Develops Improved Lawn Mower (TOR-9228) - November 30, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) November 29, 2014

    "I have owned a landscaping company for 25 years," said an inventor from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. "I grow frustrated with my employees when they scar customers gardens with conventional mowers, which is why I invented a mower that will cut grass without scarring gardens."

    He developed the patent-pending Extend A Deck to make it easier to cut grass. The design ensures that the grass is cut cleanly and neatly so that it looks professionally done. The mower will not slip into flower beds when mowing around them. It also will not scar the edges of gardens with the blade. In addition, the mower saves time and effort, and is designed for ease of operation.

    The original design was submitted to the Toronto office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 13-TOR-9228, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368.

    Most home owners, and even commercial contractors are completely unaware that they could easily get twice the life out of their outdoor power equipment AND service it less often if it was properly stored and properly maintained.

    A Budding Gardening Business - November 14, 2014 by Mr HomeBuilder

    With services like lawn mowing, lawn care, hedge trimming and tree chopping, its surprising to hear Carmichael Gardening Services is owned and operated solely by husband and wife team Brian and Jane Carmicahel.

    They established the business three years ago, until Brian quit his full-time job to focus on their business.

    Before then, I was just mowing lawns in the afternoons and around my full-time job, Brian says.

    We did a course funded by the government to help small business. You get a certificate three or four in small business, and we did that in Toowoomba while we were still working and running this business for about six weeks.

    Starting a new business was scary, but the key lies in learning to be resilient in times of rejection.

    Dont give up, Brian counsels. Dont be disappointed by rejection and lack of customers. Keep going and it will come. Keep putting your name out there, talk to people in the street, put out business cards, flyers; youve got to keep looking forward every day.

    Pic: Brian Carmichael. Source: Supplied.

    One marketing tactic Carmichael Gardening Services uses is putting leaflets in houses with untidy yards when mowing a house on the street, something which has been quite effective so far.

    They also ask for business referrals from current customers, but says a challenge is trying to get more repeat customers.

    Its been fairly tough, especially when it doesnt rain; were now at our fourth month without rain. It gets harder and harder, but its a good chance to catch up on admin and on things around our own property, Brian says.
