Here are some pics of a job we did today. We mowed and cleaned it up first and then installed 5 yards of black mulch. I got some pics of my foreman Rafael mowing.

No offense as the landscaping certainly doesn't help, and I'm sure you were told what to do mulch color wise...... but that looks terrible. The black looks good against certain colors... and that house is not in one of those colors. Not slamming your work at all that looks fine, but the landscaping looks terrible.

Tell Rafael I like his hat :)

Ya i know the yard is a mess. We had all the leaves cleaned up before we mulched but then when we where finished the wind started picking up. I honestly think the landscaping is **** but he just wanted to mulch because he is trying to sell it. Trust me it looks a thousand times better than it did.

Classic: I love the fingers in the shot.
Just a tip for next time: Try keeping your fingers out of the shot.
Just Kidding The mulch looks good and I like you taste in mowers.

I think it looked like crap and it was my guys who did it. I didnt want to do it but at the time I needed the money and he insisted on black. I am definatly not a miracle worker.

I don't think people posting that something 'looks like ****' is useful what so ever. If they don't like it, they shouldn't post at all, or at lest offer constructive criticism. I know some times we have to do what the customer wants (i.e. mulch color/no edging/ugly stone choice/etc) and not what we want. This looks like one of those situations, and it looks like you did what you were asked to do very well. As the leaves are not chopped up at all I am guessing that they fell after you mowed, and are therefor not even your fault. If they were there when you mowed with that bag they would have been gone, and if not they would have at least been chopped up. Keep up the good work and don't let the bashers get you down.

I agree with riverwalk, it don't matter if we don't like it or if Sean don't like it. The customer is always right ;). I sometimes have to just bite my tongue when customers do stuff like that. What he did he did well though.:)

Ya I had two guys working for me at that time and they did it while I was at school. They did a good job with what they were given to work on.
