View Full Version : Cleanup Job

05-24-2011, 09:50 PM
Did a cleanup for a friend of mine this week. He moved into the house in 2007 and had NEVER touched the shrubs or the beds. Got a buddy of mine to help me out with it. 2 hours each of trimming and 3 more hours of cleanup and laying 4 yards of pine bark nuggets, here's the results. By the way, the customer is a popular local media personality. He gave me and my website a shout out on his highly rated radio show this morning!

It is all a matter of taste of course, but trimming up the previous design, would have complimented the house more... Bringing everything to ground level is not appealing to many people... that is why "Design" is best cleared with the H.O... :)

That's why we did what the customer asked for :)

Looks great, nice work! Looks like a high rent kinda neighborhood!

I've got a customer that about like that, although I might argue it could be worse. I'm DREADING it. But if I can get it to look half that good, I think the owner and myself would be very happy.

Excellent work.

Can you share what you charged? It sounds like with the publicity you received and the "friend" status, you might not want to share. Curiosity killed the cat though, so I have to ask.

I love doing cleanups. Making a dramatic difference to the customers eyes almost guarantees repeat or continued work. I always play the angle "for x dollars it can always look like this and its one less thing you have to worry about".

And thanks for the compliments guys! I had help from a buddy who has his own lawn care business as well. We subtracted the cost of the mulch and split the proceeds. He helps me on jobs and i help him. The job has gotten us some leads!

Awesome job, it looks 100x better. I personally wouldn't have trimmed some of the bushes quite as far back, but if your friend is happy with it, then great. I wish I had a friend like him to give me shout-outs lol. Great work **thumbs up**

Just curious, was any selective pruning performed, or was everything either removed or buzzed back with a hedge trimmer?

actually there was some selective trimming on a couple of trees. Some bushes were simply pulled out because down in the mess, they were dead. Outside of that, YES. It was a shearing.
