June 5, 2018 – The future of Canada’s professional turf and grounds maintenance industry is in good hands. From coast to coast, several bright, young superstars have been making a difference in the industry, paving the way for the next wave of up-and-coming professionals. This week, we profile the third (in alphabetical order) of our Top 10 Under 40 roster of selected recipients: Brett Finlayson.
It’s humid and the temperatures are soaring. You’ve been working hard for hours. You feel dizzy, have a pounding headache, and your intense thirst suddenly reminds you that it’s been hours since you’ve paused to drink something.

In a crowded market, it can be tough for landscape contractors to set themselves apart from other businesses offering essentially the same services.

Quiet. That word describes, perfectly, the new 3.0L Power Stroke diesel just introduced by Ford. I’ve driven it, stood beside it while idling and floored it uphill while towing – it is eerily quiet. This trait, plus the power it makes, now available in the F-150, makes this introduction a true milestone in the history of the F-series. And, as of today, you can order this diesel engine in your new half-ton – a first in the 70-year life of the brand.
Sports turf managers have common responsibilities no matter where they work in Canada. Yet their jobs can differ significantly, depending on the quality and quantity of fields in their care, whether they are caring for natural or artificial fields, whether the fields are privately owned or are administered by the municipality, and depending on the level of communications between the manager and the fields’ user groups.
Now that the growing season has (finally) arrived in most of Canada following a winter season that didn’t want to leave the stage and stuck around long enough for an encore or two, we have the usual concerns associated with outdoor work.
