This is the most exciting spring we have had since 2008 when we began the year with a newborn and our busiest new year ever. The economy seems to be strengthening, because we have had a full schedule every week since the first of February. FEBRUARY! Even when we and our "mobile adventure unit" were buried under five inches of snow, our email box was flooded with requests for our new client questionnaire and meetings. Thank goodness the slower pace of 2009 and 2010 seems to be almost forgotten...
This year we have changed up our meeting schedule a bit. Mondays we are working on revisions and mailing design packages. Tuesdays through Thursdays we meet with new clients. Fridays are dedicated to working on designs, and Saturdays are for events or meetings and working in-office on designs. Design presentations are conducted by phone and email and can be scheduled just about anytime Mondays or Fridays when we are in-office. Evenings we sometimes meet with new clients, sometimes present designs. Sundays we gasp for air...and prepare for the next week! Of course, we will always do our best to accommodate your schedule if you have only specific days and times you can meet. Just let us know your preferences when you request a new client questionnaire.
As for events...this Saturday, April 9th, from noon to 1pm, catch us at the Denton Redbud Festival. We have a special relationship with Keep Denton Beautiful. Over the past four or five years we have collaborated with them on some incredible community projects, such as Project Post Oak and Denia Garden. Currently we are in the proposal phase of another fascinating sustainable landscape project, and we hope to make an announcement about it soon. So exciting! The Redbud Festival will be a great event to learn more about living and landscaping sustainably. Hope to see you there!
Next Saturday, April 16th, we will drop by the Heads-Up irrigation booth at the Live Green in Plano Expo. They will have our card available at their table, but we want to drop in for a bit to chat up some folks we haven't seen in ages. Some have never met Sage, our little wildflower. Hope to spend a few moments with you there, too.
Friday the 29th we will be speaking at Coppell High School as part of their Earth Day expo. Looking forward to meeting some of you leaders-of-tomorrow!
If April showers, then May's flowers will bloom abundant meetings and events. (Crossing all our petals.) So many wonderful things are happening for us (and you, we hope!) despite The Recent Unpleasantness in Austin. Our truck is gone, our camper too. Our trailer will live on, modified. If you would like to see pics, we invite you to take a look at our business page on Facebook. Lots of pics of plants and nature there, too. Just search for NativeDave.com (business page, not group page.) Happy viewing, all.
And to all, wishes for a spectacular spring!
