How to set a yard sign!

Setting a sign in the yard does not require a post hole digger.  Blocks, rebar, and an open leg sign is all you need.  Our signs usually need adjusted once or twice during a project due to this design.  But filling the holes afterward is eliminated completly.

This video isn’t just about placing a sign into a client’s yard.  The real importance is showing that we care about a clients home.   Its in the details, the small thoughts that create that caring connection.

What are examples were you have felt your interests taken care of?

What are ways they have not been taken care of?

    I so wish our contractor has used your method. We had huge holes in our yard—that were never filled in, by the way—and they were an eye-sore.

    This is smart thinking. That’s what I love about you guys. You think things all the way through.

    Well done.

      Thanks Gail, I really appreciate the comment. Its amazing how those forgotten things, like not filling in the holes, stay with us. My goal is to keep eliminating the holes in our business! Suggestions are always appreciated.

    Great idea, Chris. I can’t believe I never thought of that method before. I wonder if you used a 7/8″ x 24″ steel grade stake (round) you could beef that up and not have to adjust as often? Steel grade stakes have nail holes in the side, so you could drive it down most of the way, put a nail through the hole in the stake, and then really pin that 4×4 down to the ground. Just a thought. Funny video. Eric didn’t look too enthused in the beginning. 😉 Good seeing you guys the other day.

      That’s a great idea, I have a few grade stakes so I will have to give that a try. As for Eric, he stays cool in front of the camera. Part of his persona! Anyway, great to see you too.
