It costs less than hiring labor and doing it by hand with a wheel barrow. Also uses much less mluch with laying an even layer throughout the beds. As you can see these beds have alot of plantings and such so it would take along time to do it all and make it look nice. I didn't want to be there another day just laying mulch and i still turned a profit of the mulch. It was a good property to try it out and see what it can do. He's done almost 30 yards in about 3 hours before.

These leaves wer pretty dry so they weren't all "matted" down. The blowers are very powerful so we just beat the leaves till the move. Some mulch does get blown out too but I clean it up. In the pool there was alot of leaves. Not much had been cleaned up in the fall. You just have to blow hard from all directions for a while to get them all out.

Nice work redmax man but with all those pics did you do any work? Just givin you a hard time man. I cant blame you for subbing out the mulch. I believe the saying goes work smarter not harder.
