This our first Job that we took before and after pictures of. We are new to hedging so hopefully we will get even better. This is also my first time uploading pictures here so bear with me.

Let me know what you think

Looks good boss. Shrubs are nice and tight and look good. I love how every house in NE Philly looks the same white on the bottom and brick the rest of the way up. How is your season going?

haha it's so true! all houses look the same. Season's going great! expanding pretty quickly and making some nice money. How about for you?

Nice work. I like the slight radius on the edges. Too many guys go for the 90 degree look which is short lived and not good for the plant. What trimmers did you use?

I used a HC-150, it is an echo hedger.

Good stuff. Season is going pretty good finally found some decent help and things are rolling along nicely, picked up a few nice commercial accounts and have been doing some landscaping and hardscaping along with normal houses to keep busy. Taking my first day off all year this weekend and getting my house all set up.

That's great! Glad to hear that your staying busy. Where in Philadelphia do you work again?

Yeah, I got one of those too as a backup. Real good forearm workout from those. Stick pruners are a nice upgrade. A spritz of Fluid Film makes them self cleaning too.

Yeah that's really true. It is really heavy, which I don't mind as much as some others might since I like working out haha. I would love to get a stick hedger however i think they are very expensive. For the amount of hedging jobs we do i doubt it would be worth it.

Good reason to get a Kombi or other split boom setup. I have picked up more accounts because guys have said they cant/won't provide a service. Suggest and upsell.
