Nah, we use the vermeer 600tx for the holes. Don't have a augar for the Bobcat but a job like this that 4in1 buckets is worth a million dollars.
Hey Fastcat! No irrigation in this yard. Hopefully new landscape will intice him to water grass also.:)

You and your guys do AMAZING work. I like learning from the great photos that you post. Anyways, how many guys did it take to get that done in just a day?

Yesterday it was 2 guys, and we didnt get started until about 11am. Long story but a tire blow out was the start of why we got delayed. Today we had to take care of a few small jobs before lunch, and got there about 12:30pm, and the left the job at 4:30. Today we had 5 guys on it. Yesterday was rip out, and today was new plants and mulch.


And yes, the T190 came from bobcat of greenville. :weightlifter:

we love it! couldn't be happier. Its a big step up from the old 773 tire unit we used to have. From that, to tracks, lots more power, heat, air, cab, radio. Lets just say we'll never go back! :laugh:

how much did you charge for the whole job? removing and installing, and all

also when you service a property for lawn maintance, do you (in 1-5 order)

1. weeded first
2. edge driveway & sidewalk
3. blow what you edged into uncut grass from sidewalk and driveway
4. mow the property
5. blow again for a final touch up

this question probably wasnt directed but this is how we do it when i am workin...

1) pull weeds and cut grass all at the same time.
2)edge and weedeat and spray trimec and weed killer
3)one person blows the driveway off while the other two load the truck up.

(just remember that is with three people and one person cuts and weedeats while the other spray and pull weeds and blow the driveway and sidewalks off)

typically the maint. guys have 2 guys jump on the mowers while one guy edges the beds. Then the guy that edged the beds will edge the curbs after the mowers are mostly done cutting, so the mower doesn't run over the edge again. Then one or 2 guys blow off while the last one pulls weeds or what not.
