Pruning is the most profitable part of my service, this site plus another hedge was 680lbs of cuttings!

Nice trimming, I would have done the mulch a little different , just my two cents. Keep up the good work..........

I'm NOT a fan of the mulch used, cedar bark. I like cow manure and sawdust the best. You get better plants and in the fall you get those magic mushrooms growing up through it!

Panzer, is that an orchard ladder your using? I was wondering about the stability being a tripod. I would think it would be easier to place in tight areas opposed to a typical step ladder.

Yes it is.... a 12 footer! The tri-pod works great as I use it on allot of hills, one is able to find balance better. It fits nice on the truck also, it's very light as well.

cool, I may have to get one of those, did you buy it local or online?

We have both an 8' & a 12'. They are not made for concrete, but they excel on uneven terrain. On many large shrubs, you just stick the pol in the middle & you're on top of your work (as opposed to a standard step ladder whereas the higher you go, the further you get from the plant. They are extreemly stable too. The 8' is so lightweight. You can get them through AM Leonard, or Bissett Supply. I would suggest ordering both at the same time to save on the freight.

What I did to overcome the concrete thing was to cut a tennis ball and put it on the bottom of the support spoke.... presto! NON-SKID!!!
You can find them at rental places on sale sometimes.... I paid a bit less than $200 for the 12 footer.....money well spent!

I really like the changes you made. And for some reason, on one of the pictures all I noticed was the garden gnome. Don't know why, but I kept focusing on it.

Great work!

The famous GARDEN GNOME!!! My worker broke off his hammer during that job! I used some irrigation glue to fix it.....:)
The client noticed a faint blue line and then added 2=2!
She was OK about it, though...

Great job! Nice stripes. Nice edging.

What size of mower is that? 36 ? Looks great. Is that a split boom Echo with the articulating attachment or a dedicated articulating hedge trimmer? Also, if you dont mind, is that you only hedge trimmer? I am debating on whether to buy the attachment for my split boom or get a small normal hedge trimmer. It would be helpful for me to know if you can do all your hedges with the big articulating or just break it out for giant laurel hedges.
btw is it really that dry in Seattle this yr too? The lawns look like all my lawns. and are u the poster that once said they live in an area with small lawns and big plants cause wow, looks like that is def the case. (and for me too) :)

Yes, those shears make a 90* cut..... I looked into split boom stuff and just go with dedicated units. I cut EVERYTHING with them, well SHEARABLE stuff anyway! I use hand pruners allot, in fact more than anything.....
These sites run on the spicket, ie- irrigation, otherwise the grass is straw..... it's hard to make hay without water!
These latest pics are from my BIGGEST lawns, and they were cut with the FAMOUS TORO 2 cycle 21 commercial mower.....
in the wet times I use reels 18' or 25', reels rule the day of rain because they'll pick up EVERYTHING and cut SMOOTHE in a downpour.....

I'll post some edge pics in the winter, that's when we peel back the edge on all planting areas, and most turf areas....
