Are You Ready for a Landscaping Boom This Summer?
By Mike McClanahan / June 28, 2022

Even in the face of generational inflation and rising mortgage rates, residential construction is up 18.6% through May 2022, according to one industry analyst. And most of that gain is in the higher end of the market meaning that many affluent homebuyers will be looking to upgrade the minimal landscaping most builders provide.

Add to that the added local demand for disaster recovery in areas like Boulder County and landscaping could be in for a boom this year. Which means more need for building and maintaining landscaping fleet.

At O.J. Watson Equipment, we’re ready to help you meet that added demand with truck bodies designed to add versatility and efficiency to your landscaping business.

Platform Trucks Add Versatility
Platform trucks are the most versatile choice for hauling equipment and supplies to job sites. With a choice of wood or steel floors, a selection of staked or stakeless options, and light or heavy duty construction, platform trucks are adaptable to a wide variety of uses, allowing a single truck to perform a variety of tasks every workday, saving both time and money.

Dump Trucks for the Long Haul
From a “box of rocks” to fill dirt and topsoil, a dump truck can haul a variety of loads to keep your landscaping business humming. A purpose-built dump truck and hoist combo saves hours of loading and unloading bulk materials, adding efficiency to your jobs and dollars to your bottom line. We’ve been designing and building dump truck bodies since our opening days over 100 years ago, so let us build the right one for you.

Utility Trucks Play Multiple Roles
Our utility trucks are designed to meet the needs of your business. From mobile service trucks to carry parts and supplies for onsite maintenance to supervisor’s trucks with secure toolboxes and specialized tools, a utility truck is ready whenever and wherever it’s needed. Let us design one that’s tailored to your specific business needs.
