That was a jungle. Looks good.

Did you try and talk them into edging the beds and new mulch? That would of made the job alot easier(The cleanup).

the clean up was a big pain on this one. The edging and new stones will be done in the spring, the customer wants to make big changes to the landscaoe then, just wanted a good trimming for the fall/winter

looks good, although i would prune the canopy a little tighter. i agree about the edging and mulch though, i would have tried to talk them into that too. overall looks great.

i dont mind it as long as i have a clean-up guy working right behind me. good money quickly. i especially like trimming the 2-5" of mid season growth for customers, you know the stuff that can be hidden under the canopy of the shrubs? those are my favorite. $50 in 50 minutes w/ no haul-offpayuppayuppayup

thats about 1 season of neglect thats normal groth and normal weed since this spring if the beds were left alone by next year this time those shrubs will look the same again, but hopefully you will take care of the weeding. looks fine you did a good job i would trim more back on the plants and make them a little tighter but still a good job.

I like hedging, its a lot a work, but you can charge more because the customer certainly doesn't want to do it. Its good money

i second that.... unless you have a mulch kit on your mower then it's simple :clapping:

I just get the trimmings into the grass then it's just a matter of putting the bagger on the push mower and going to town. It's getting everything out of the mulch that takes forever.

idle the blower and "dust" off the mulch, i normally try to upgrade pruning jobs to mulch installs at the same time. if they dont go this route then i explain that we will clen the beds out, but some clippings will remain.
