Needless to say I was soaked, the debris was soaked, the leaves were soaked.
Took 2 hours. I used my hedge trimmer attachment like a scythe to cut down a few perennial flowers and a few good masses of Hosta's. While I was at it I went ahead and trimmed the box woods. They were looking funky like they had some sort of rust on the outer leaves and there were a few dead leaves in them. They looked better even though I don't like to trim bushes this late in the season.
All in all, 2 hours and I was done. I didn't charge her as she is the client that referred me to the current client I am doing the paver sidewalk for. I thought it would be a little kick-back for her.
Another customer with a giant Miscanthus. They don't hold well in the winter so it was time to chop them down.
