RICHFIELD, Ohio – Five landscape contractors and lawn care operators who responded to a recent survey from Lawn & Landscape have won $150 each.
 
The five men responded to the 2010 Benchmarking Your Business survey that supplements Lawn & Landscape’s annual report.
 
The winners are:
  • Tim Johnson, Johnson Landscape Co., Crows Landing, Calif.
  • Jay Donelan, Greenshore Lawn Care, Shorewood, Wis.
  • Norman Drevitch, Norm’s Landscaping, Staten Island, N.Y.
  • Mark Brause, On the Mark Enterprises LTD, Kansas, Ohio
  • Javier Lesaca, Lesaca Landscape Company, Bakersfield, Calif.
The annual Benchmarking Your Business Report, sponsored by John Deere, gets into the minutiae of your P&L statements. How much do you spend on labor for lawn care technicians? How have your material costs changed since last year? What do you spend on gas? And – more importantly – what does everyone else in your region spend?
