Last week, we had the honor of celebrating two very special 20th anniversaries: Mark Innis and Stacy Smith from our Georgia landscape construction branch. Long overdue because of the pandemic, this joint celebration included a limo ride/tour of past construction job sites, happy hour with the Georgia team, and a special dinner with their wives and long-time teammates.

Both Mark (a.k.a. "Rambo") and Stacy (a.k.a. "Bones") joined Ruppert when we first entered the Georgia market through a large construction project for the DOT in preparation for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. They were instrumental in building the Georgia branch from the ground up and have played a huge part in it's success over the years. As our construction division grew, they each helped establish the North Carolina and Texas branches as well, spending time there away from their families to get those operations off the ground. They have also been instrumental in some of our largest national projects in places like Oklahoma, Nashville, Tampa, Houston, and Connecticut. They are the backbone of the Georgia team and have a wealth of institutional knowledge between them. They are often called in when we are working with new clients to give them confidence in our skills and understanding of the work, not to mention their killer personalities. Mark's wife Lisa and Stacy's wife Hope are also proud supporters of the Ruppert team, having formed what is affectionately referred to as the "Ruppert wives club" alongside a few others in the branch.

Mark and Stacy, we can't thank you enough for all you've done for this company and for your team. Congratulations on 20 years and here's to many more!

A Recap of our recent Shop Manager Meeting

Having an in-house-house fleet team and shop facilities at each of our branch locations allows us to keep our vehicles and equipment in top working order and running longer. We work hard to maintain well organized, clean, safe, and productive shop facilities. As part of that, we are committed to ongoing training for our mechanics and shop managers.

In this video, our Regional Fleet Manager, Johnny Sawyer, recaps our most recent Shop Manager Meeting and why this training is so important. We also hear from a few of our Shop Managers on what they learned and how they will apply that knowledge back at the branch. https://youtu.be/Qh1atm_WEPk

Learning From the Largest - National Association of Landscape Professionals

"We spoke to several of the biggest lawn and landscaping companies in the country to find out what they feel contributed most significantly to their growth story and what advice they might have for others looking to take things to the next level."
...
"'Watch and learn from your competition,' [Craig] Ruppert advises. 'Every competitor we have does something better than we do, and we can learn something from each of them. There are a lot of great companies out there that we’ve admired and learned from over the years — and frankly, are still learning from today.'"
...
"'There are a lot of things that we don’t do, that we could do, but we choose to focus on our strengths and make sure we’re delivering a quality product,' Ruppert continues. 'We tend to be conservative in everything we do, with a focus on steady growth and cautious spending.'"

In the lawn and landscaping business, everyone has to get their start somewhere. But for most companies, the goal is to grow in some form or fashion.

Last week, Regional Snow Manager Josh Nichols conducted training for our local branches on proper brine application and operation of Snowrators (a specialized piece of equipment that allows crews to brine, spread, and plow walkways simultaneously). We invest this time in training our teams and preparing our equipment and materials so that we are ready to hit the pavement when winter weather hits.

We are still accepting applications for snow removal subcontractors, plow truck drivers, and skid steer operators. For more information, fill out this form: https://www.ruppertlandscape.com/snow-partner/

Maryland Farm & Harvest Visits Baltimore, Montgomery, and Prince George’s Counties

Catch our friends at Ruppert Nurseries on tonight's episode of Maryland Farm & Harvest presented by Maryland Public Television (airing at 7pm on MPT-HD).

"The Maryland Farm & Harvest team travels to Laytonsville in Montgomery County to meet with University of Maryland Entomologist Paula Shrewsbury, where she shares with viewers the science behind the 17-year cicadas’ re-emergence and her passion for the unique insects. At Playtime Pastures in Woodstock (Baltimore County), farmer Jamie Condon shares a similar affinity for cicadas because of the protein-packed snack they provide her free-range chickens. On the other hand, cicadas prove problematic for other aspects of Maryland agriculture such as new tree production.

Joe Carbonara, Project Manager in our Virginia Landscape Construction Branch

Q: In which branch of the military did you serve, and what was your rank/title?
A: US Marines, Corporal, Infantry Squad Leader

Q: How do you think your time in the military has affected you?
A: It was hard and most of the time not very fun, but I grew up and learned a lot and I wouldn’t trade my time in the Marines for anything.

Q: What did you learn about yourself? / What is something you learned during service that has served you well?
A: I learned that I could push the limits of my mental and physical endurance much further than I would have otherwise expected.

Q: What military skills have you translated to your career in the landscape industry?
A: I was fortunate to have great leaders and was able to copy their examples and develop my own set of traits. The one which has translated to the landscape industry, especially in my roles as a field manager and now a project manager, has been servant-leadership. We cannot be successful unless our crew men and women feel supported and empowered. As managers this is how we can be most impactful and it should always be our number one priority.

Casey Mills | IT Systems Administrator

Q: In which branch of the military did you serve, and what was your rank/title?
A: USMC, 0352 Anti tank assault guided missileman, got out as a Sergeant

Q: How do you think your time in the military has affected you?
A: My time in the military affected me in mostly positive ways. As much as things could be difficult, you always came out stronger, mentally and physically.

Q: What did you learn about yourself? / What is something you learned during service that has served you well?
A: I learned my mental and physical limits and what I was truly made of. They break you down and build you back up to be one of the most resilient individuals who knows no quit. This in itself is something I learned during service that has served me well, cause if you can make it through all of those things, you can make it through anything.

Q: What military skills have you translated to your career in the landscape industry?
A: My ability to shoot a missile as far as 4200 meters has translated exponentially to the landscape industry. There are many fewer competing landscape company trucks on the road now...But on a serious note, the idea of team work which is instilled from day one, working efficiently, being thorough and not stopping till the job is done, are all skills that have helped me to excel in my career.
