I could only wish to get my edges that deep in CT, its the land of the rocks where i come from. I cant go 2 feet without hitting huge rocks just inches under the surface.

Some more work pics...a few of the trucks. We did the house in the background of the one that shows my personal truck. The lawn is in really tough shape so I didn't take any close ups:laugh:

Believe me...we hit them too. A lot of times when we take over a property we use a grub hoe as well as an edger.

One thing i will say tho is i notice you use a fair amount of red mulch, No one but taco bell and Mcdonalds uses red mulch in my part of CT, Work looks amazing tho man.

Thanks. I am not sure that I love it. I bought a hundred yards of it though. My guys love it and customers seem to also. We are through probably 50 yards of the red so far. We usually do 300-400 yards of mulch every year but I think we may be over 400 this year. Already over a hundred and just started mulching.

Loamed and hydroseeded the first one, then mulch, then another hydro sort of overseed and mulch job. The last one is mulch then dethatch aerated and slice seeded to fill in the lawn.

Shoot your ahead of me, i still haven't finished cleanups yet, let alone laying mulch, I got roughly 200 yards of mulch scheduled so far, then we usually get a few big jobs that creep in right after spring for mulch. Closest thing to red that people out here use is a hemlock blend.

Yea the hemlock you show and the hemlock i show are worlds apart in color.

That is good in a way. My guys have families to support so they always want to work. It can be stressful when things slow down making sure they all have 40 hours.

Man you should really look into a professional designer. There's some layout issues with shape of beds and plant selection that just don't make sense. The quality of the instillation looks good but improving the design would take it to a new level of quality.

None of them were designed by us. This thread is in response to someone else talking about mulch jobs that aren't edged. We re-do the edges and mulch. The only jobs other than just redefining beds and mulch is the loam and hydroseed jobs that are posted in this thread

looks good...i don't think that would ever work here though...all of the mulch would just wash right out of those beds and off the hills here due to the massive flood rains we get sometimes lol...everyone here uses some sort of border like stone, brick, rocks, metal or plastic around their beds instead of the bed edging like you guys do up north

Same for me to.

Same for me to.

It depends on where you are here. For the most part houses in nice developments have 3-6 inches of screened loam arouond the yard. The soil is rocky here too, it just depends on where you are and how much work you want to put into it. Like I said before, a lot of times we use a grub hoe to get the rocks up.
