Equipped for all seasons
Brady Smikles isn't exaggerating when he says that winter takes up half the year at his firm. Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Smikles Enterprises faces long winters and short landscaping seasons.
“Between getting ready for winter, waiting for snow to melt and doing snow removal, our winters are six months,” Smikles says. “Typically, we don't start landscaping work until late April or early May, and we're usually done by Halloween.”
