What is your favorite project that you have worked on at Turfscape?
Back in 2019 I was doing fertilization in the field. I can remember having a large inventory of fertilizer to get through, pallets and pallets of it. Watching the pallets of fertilizer become less and less as the weeks went on until finally on the last round of fert for the season we dropped the last bag into the hopper.

It was an employee appreciation party we had for everyone. We grilled burgers and hot dogs, there was music playing, and we played cornhole. Everyone was very sociable and had a great time. It was great to get to know some of the Turfscape team that I didn't work with every day.
