Largest Landscape Project Yet...

Today we completed this job. Spring cleanup including tine rake dethatching, Bed/ hard surface edging and prep work and bark mulching. My buddy did the mulching blowing in 1.5 hours with 3 helpers. Used almost 13 yards of natural hemlock bark mulch. Thanks to Mystic Landscape, All-Pro Landscaping (LawnSite members) and their buddy Eric for the help on the job before the mulch installation.

I did 2 hours of cleanup work yesterday with my 2 helpers to get a head start. The rest was all completed today.

I must have deleted my Before pics because i can't find them.

Questions? comments? anything welcome!

This job sucks! Can you say sore back? And a fall off the tailgait waiting to happen.
I like the mulch trucks with a hopper and an auger that self feed better.

First off they offerd to help. They aren't my employees. They had ear protecting and didn't choose to wear it when i was taking those pics. I know for a fact the do where ear protecting often but not everysingle time they are within hearing distance of something that makes a noise.

My eye sight is fine.

So is every job supposed to be easy and not require any effort? That guy was not stuck doing that the whole time nonstop by himself. He's smart enough and has been taught how to do the job and concept of gravity...

Hey I'm 15 and have been doing a lot of leaf clean-ups and I know this may sound stupid but I was wondering how you get the beds so clear, I always have trouble getting all the leaves out of bushes and things. Usually I have to take a rake and get them out. (FYI I have a BR 550) Are there any tricks or tips for this?

Thanks
Ryan
