Efficiency Tip: Casual Fridays

March 15, 2017 -  By

Everyone has different reasons for loving Fridays.

The employees of Deep Roots Landscape Contractors in Merritt Island, Fla., like the week’s bookend because it’s when they tackle less daunting tasks.

“On Fridays or every other Friday, we’ll go out and complete one, two or three smaller jobs,” says Owner Matt Hall. “It’s nice to have a little buffer between large jobs and break from the job site. The guys appreciate being able to zone out for a little bit.”

The company, which performs installation jobs for a mostly residential clientele, completes projects like property cleanups or small paver installations. These jobs typically take anywhere from a few hours to a day instead of the three-to-seven-day jobs the firm typically performs.

While these jobs offer a decent profit margin, Hall says their primary purpose is to diversify.

“I don’t want to put all our eggs in one basket,” he says. “At any moment, new construction can come to a halt and the nice size landscape jobs can slow down. If we don’t have everyday homeowners needing work done, we’re kind of dead in the water.”
