Despite the heat, a local landscaping company is dedicated to customers | KLBK | KAMC
LUBBOCK, Texas – Turf Raider, a local landscaping and lawn company, said they’ve received a lot of business lately.
The hot weather has forced many people to maintain their lawns in recent weeks. Turf Raider owner Art Rodriguez said they were very busy responding to requests.
“Lots of calls [are coming in because] everyone’s lawn [has] grown up, and with the heat – of course – and mixed in with all the rain, really makes our business get calls, ”Rodriguez said.
The season has brought a lot of new and returning business, but working in the elements isn’t easy money.
“It’s hard to get people to work in there. It’s also difficult to hire people, ”Rodriguez said.
It’s hard work in the unbearable heat, but the crew love what they do.
“We keep a happy environment here at Turf Raider and continue to make people happy with what they do,” Rodriguez said.
They will average over 30 acres of property per day. Emie Young, one of their clients for over 2 years, said she was dedicated and passionate about her work.
“They’re here rain or shine in 108 degree weather,” Young said. “We really appreciate that they came to help us keep our lawn beautiful and maintain our property. ”
