I thought I would start a thread with a few pictures of some of the properties we maintain. I'll try to keep adding to it as we go along. We just picked this one up this year and no we did not do the volcanoes.

Well, I'm trying to upload some of a mulch job we did earlier but it keeps saying "upload failed". Guess it doesn't like the pictures.

Thanks, I hope it does! It took longer than I expected. I believe the house sat empty for a while. Grass grew, laid over, more grass grew... Should be dethatched but I don't think they're ready for that. Definitely can't wait for the after pics myself.

Is that your wife working for you? Work looks good man.

Yes Goldpro, that's my wife, right hand person and all around ace boon coon. She's like my master card... never leave home without her!
Thanks.

All irrigated, all fert'ed. Weather's been pretty decent lately too. Fair amount of rain, a few 70+ degree days.

I can't understand why some of the pictures won't upload. Same camera, same size, same everything. I even tried renaming them to see if that would work.
Frustrating.......

Lets try a few from last year. Small 5 yard mulch and planting.

Lefet

Yo man...work looks great! I got your message today, I'll give ya a shout back tomorrow. The lady that called you is the mother of one of my new customers. I believe she wants cutting, fert., and possibly more. I hope you get some work out of it. BTW...I have been having the same problem with pics loading lately....it's really annoying.

Thanks Bill!
She does want it all, and then some. Yard needs quite a bit of work, but we'll take care of her.
I don't know what's up with the pics, I gave up for today!

Lefet - Everything looks good.
Not trying to critique your work but would it not be better to not mound the mulch around the trees such as you did?

+1 on the mulch volcanos. Otherwise, looks VERY nice.

yeah only thing i would suggest is a little less mulch around the trees. if you put too much they will begin to rot around the base of the tree. maybe go half as high on the mulch. everything else looks great though!!!

i would suggest using a site like www.photobucket.com or www.tinypic.com and uploading your pics there and then pasting the links here. it just seems to work better that way for me. :)

Thanks for the resurrection, (and the reminder!!). Yes, I do have more pictures and I'll post more when I get a chance.

Thanks for the advice. If I have trouble with additional photos I try to add, I'll give this a shot.

Mulch volcanoes:
Some of them we did, some not (very first post/picture) and I am aware how it "should" be. HOWEVER, if that's what the customer wants, that's what he gets. I take the time to explain the reasons why it shouldn't be done but oftentimes, they still insist. I am, on some occasions, able to reach some sort of compromise. Like use topsoil for the height and mulch at the very top, or "hollow out" (I call it) the top so it looks like a bowl.

Either way, constructive criticism is always welcome.

Here's one of a lawn we maintain, as in cut. I wish we could take credit for the fertilization but I can't. We do love cutting it though!!


Edit: Now have to try different uploading of pictures. Present upload failed.

I believe that doing that will have the same result. It doesnt matter what the media used is, it will still cause rot by disrupting the flow of nutrients in the bark. I could be wrong, as I have never personally tested this, but I have replaced some dead trees that were done that way. By the way, The cut quality looks good. The more pictures I look at on here, the more I think I should start my thread...hmmm

I agree, except that it is the lack of fresh air that causes the base of the tree to rot. If you pile up any material right next to the base of the trunk, you are essentially smothering the tree. The mulch around the base should be shaped like a doughnut - tall around the outside edges of the circle, with almost no mulch above ground level next to the tree trunk.

Let's try this again, see what happens!!

Lefet

Okay, this is the one I'd LOVE to take credit for the fert, but I can't.
Just glad I'm able to post pictures now!!

These are just a few random pictures. A small install we did and one of the ponds we use to maintain. We're not doing the ponds anymore, trying to focalize on certain areas and excel.

Very nice water feature, Kevin. The crane really sets it off, too.
