Heres some pictures of a leaf clean up and a tree shaping job, on the leaf clean up we mulch all the leaves into the lawn, we didn't even fill up the hopper on the walker on the last pass.

Looks great man. That tree looks perfect. What did you do exactly on the cleanup? Just blow out the beds and collect the leaves with the Walker?

Thanks--Yea we blew everything out but the point was that we didn't haul any leaves off we mulched them back into the lawn it sure saves on trips to the landfill and the customers are happy because they know its good for the soil.

The shrub looks like a giant egg! Nice and symetrical...........great work!

I can't get over how you warm season guys can mulch the leaves back into the lawn. Couldn't ever do that where I live!

Here is the other tree on the other side of the yard. These pictures were actually taken a couple of years ago, the trees are no longer there they have a new home in another yard, they were transplanted with a tree spade, the funny part is that I have trimmed them since they have been moved and they look ever bit as good.

Looks good from here!
One suggestion; you may want to invest in an orchard ladder if you are going to do lots more trims like this, I think they are a bit more stable than the A-frame in an outdoor setting.a 12 or 14 footer will get you up to most places just fine.

Also think of a exstended trimmer will keep you off the ladder more.


Good job!!!!!!!!!

oh I dont use nothing but the extended trimmers anymore, I have about five pairs between my three trucks, I wouldn't give you a dime for the ones in the picture anymore, like I said we did that work a couple of years ago. Thanks

Nice work
It looks like those pics were taken in 1970 something.
what kind of camera are you using?

The reason the pics. look like they were taken in the 70's is if you are looking at the houses they were built in the 1930's & 40's.
