Well heres something that we did last week it not lawn-care, (handicap ramp) but when you bid high and they say go ahead it's hard to so no. Can't say much for the pre-fab handrail they wanted me to put up, but the customer was happy, so thats all that matters.

Nice job. Did you look into regulations of the slope for a ramp like that? I'm sure there is a certain pitch that must be maintained.

Thanks guys and yes I went to the township for the specs on the ramp. The pitch calls for 1"-12" I'm at just under 1" per foot, the rise of the ramp is 15" for a 17' long ramp.

Nice work and looks great. Wish I had a few calls for work like that. I like doing jobs we dont often do.

I like to mix it up a little bit now and then, altogether we poured 2 yds of concrete, a coarse and a half of block racked down to grade. The ramp was 4' x 17' with a 5' x 5' landing going to a 5' x 8' porch.
