Happy New Year !
We are very excited for the upcoming seasons at Dowco. Here is a quick look at the next services we have coming up.
Snow and Ice
Last week we were hit with about 2 inches of snow in St. Louis, which was a simple cleanup. Around Christmastime last year, we experienced an unpredicted ice storm that caused thousands of vehicle accidents.
This weekend looks like we have another dangerous ice storm approaching. Our residential routes are full, and we have very limited availability still left on our commercial routes.
The winter season is a magical time of year.
It's a time for giving and receiving, a time to remember others less fortunate than us, and a time to enjoy family, friends and colleagues.
The spirit of the winter season also gives us the opportunity to reflect on all that we've been blessed with. I believe it's important to share this with all of you - clients, friends, prospects, family, email subscribers and co-workers because each of you have made a significant impact towards Dowco.
Check out this video of the work we did this year and the fun we had along the way! I hope it inspires you to set your sights even higher next year, to love more and achieve more.
We're gearing up for the holidays right around the corner and know that many of our clients will be having parties at their house. Make sure you let us know ASAP if you need a last minute leaf cleanup before your guests arrive.

The best way that I have found to stay current, is to talk to people within the industry and see what trends they've noticed on the horizon.
Here you’ll find a collection of ideas from thought leaders around North America on what they believe are going to be the biggest trends we see in lawn care, landscaping and small businesses in 2017.
When this client called and asked to set-up a meeting to discuss improving their backyard landscape I had a good feeling about the potential for the space. The entire family is outdoor enthusiasts, and they enjoy entertaining.
This morning we came together to eat breakfast as a team and celebrate our second quarter wins! We also took some time to gain feedback from the entire staff on what we love and enjoy about working at Dowco as well as the things that the company can improve on.
This time of year, neighbors start to notice and comment on beautiful landscapes that look manicured & tidy even through the heat of the summer. We want that neighbor to be you!
You could spend your weekends pulling weeds this summer, or you can relax and enjoy your outdoor space, leaving the dirty work to us. Depending on you and your lifestyle, you may prefer regularly scheduled visits or simply call us as needed - and we have options for you!
