The saga of one estate (over the past 3 weeks). Will everything be pruned, planted and pressure washed before customer returns home on 6/8/2006? The answer sadly is no. Take heart life goes on.

Pressure washing lower drive, so far so good.

For all those doubting the money making ability of the 21" mower, be amazed: $150.00 per visit, around 3 man hours. Pruning not included. Plus I aint luggin anything up those stairs BUT a 21".

Awesome looks plush!!! You can even see your foot prints perfectly.

That and the stripes it leaves fits the small area to a T!!!

What are ya gonna do? Did not touch the formal garden. Not done with all the annual planting. Can't find decent help. Can't demo the mower I want to purchase. Can't stop complaining.

Beautifull work!!! Few questions... How many of these propertys do you have? they all look huge and very very very nice!!! How many days a week you working must be 7 to keep up with it.. and how many employees do you have? Keep up the good good work... what kind of mowers you trying to demo???

I'll second that! Nice work!

I love that orchard ladder. One question, though. Do you reach for another ladder when you don't absolutely need an orchard ladder, or do you use it for most any situation? I'd love to have one, but I really don't have a good general purpose ladder yet.

Thanx for the complement. We have around 15 of these larger estates that we maintain, make now mistake we also have our 'scrub' properties. We work 5 days a week, NO more. I currently have 3 employees, 2 which have been working with me for 9 + years, and 1 that has been with me for 5 years. Its been very difficult to find anyone else to fit into this group.

I am trying to demo a Wright Stander RH 48". After considering ALL other options, this mower is what I am looking for; this mower would fit very nicely into our outfit. Compact enough to service the majority of our lawns and fit into a already cramped trailer.

I believe that is the 10' orchard ladder pictured. It is extremely useful and light-weight, anything above 12' and they get a bit unwieldy to handle with one person, but still manageable. Any tripod configuration is very stable, which is what you are looking for in a ladder. I would highly recommend an orchard ladder for 'general puposes'.
