Steve Coffey is not your ordinary landscape contractor. Sure, he does installation and construction, and he maintains the majority of the projects his crews complete in the Atlanta area. Yet, in many ways, he stands head and shoulders above the competition. His company Scapes not only does quality work, it does much of it overlooking the streets below.

Large or small, to compete successfully today, owners and operators must take advantage of any and all efficiencies.
Dick Heim had finished with his day's work. His trailer was loaded and he was tired. Ahead he could see his driveway. The furthest thing from his mind was the accident about to occur. As he slowed to make the turn, a vehicle behind slammed into the rear of his maintenance trailer, driving Dick and his trailer into a tree.
Make no mistake about it: John Flucker is in it for the money.
