IT’S TAX TIME . . . THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN MANY CONTRACTORS
look at their tax bills and wonder if they could have
done anything differently. The smart ones do more than
wonder. They seek professional advice.
ABOUT NINE YEARS AGO, DALE VON
Dohren, owner of San Jose, California-
based Landmark Landscapes,
had a successful woodworking
business. Then he saw an
opportunity in the landscaping
business and decided to change
The irrigation industry was
completely different than
what it is now when David D.
Pagano designed his first system
in 1957. Smart controllers were
years away from being invented,
as were sensing devices. If you
asked anyone in the industry
what a rotary nozzle was, most
likely your answer would have
been a silent, quizzical look from
someone wondering what on
earth you were talking about.
