George Schmok, Publisher LC DBMS I don't know about you, but we here at LC/DBM are swamped with work. Maybe it's the time of year or maybe it's due to increased confidence that the building industry is on the road to several years of solid growth, or maybe it's because that over the past few weeks we've launched four (4) new website applications: 1) The all new Tools & Equipment Search Engine features thousand of products, many of which can be found with complete cut-sheets and product specifications. It can be found at 2) The all new Local Wholesale and Plant Material Search Engine for local wholesale growers and supply companies is designed to be used on your smart phone when you are working on projects outside your normal supply area and need to quickly find plant materials, hardscapes, irrigation, lighting and equipment. There are more than 3,000 suppliers listed across the U.S. 3) The all new LADetails search engine features hundreds of manufacturers of decorative items from site furniture to street lighting, pergolas, hardscapes, water features and more. Now we are offering free downloads of the CAD Files that go along with the products. By the time you read this, thousands of products and CAD Files will be waiting for your search. 4) The Landscape Expo website. The 2018 TLE is scheduled for October 10-11 in Long Beach and will feature several new events, including almost an acre of outdoor equipment demonstrations. Registration is now open at 5) And we have been accumulating more than 800 product profiles for the upcoming Buyer's Guide, which is due out next month. So . . . It's time to take advantage of the great economic news out there, combined with a fresh spring season, and start to make a little hay while the sun is shining.
