5. Staying on Track With the Timeline Tool
Landscaping projects can be both time-sensitive and require patience, as they engage the natural elements. The timeline tool helps clients to visualise the entire process in colour-coded steps on a shared calendar. It also informs the team’s ability to place supply orders and schedule labour. For a business that operates outdoors, weather can be a major factor. The timeline allows edits to account for inclement weather, holidays or other special circumstances. “There was one client who really wanted to know when it was best to plant her roses. It was great that we could share with her exactly when we were going to be doing certain work so that she could organise herself. She really appreciated it,” Carey says.
