thats nice... I am wanting to put a bid on one in my area come October. If you don't mind me asking, how large of a property is that and what is your cost for that? Crew sizes and things like that. Thanks

yeah the headstones are the worst part about this job....now i trim around them, spray roundup around them, then when the grass dies i go back through and knock all the dead grass off....seems to work pretty well, still have to trim but not half as often.

Your lucky none of them are above ground though, haha. I'll try to drive out and snap a couple pics of mine today.
