The only way i benefit with bulk mulch is when i do 10+ yards.. Otherwise it's not worth saving 50 or so bucks. Looks good, keep it up. I would invest in a dump trailer. Once you get one, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it. I love mine.
I do bag grass sometimes but most of the time i don't or dump onsite. Yes i do dump any debris in the dump before i haul mulch or loam. Sometime i will get a dump trailer maybe but i need a second truck too if i want to use both. They are very handy thats for sure. Thanks!

Thanks, To tell you the truth my rig is one of the better and more professional, well cared for fleets in my area. I hate to come across as always bragging but thats the truth. Many companys here don't have any real care about their image but for others its an important aspect of the company.

Well, you did have a lot better trimmers and blower than most people have when they start out. I had a Ryobi trimmer and a Craftsman blower!

In one of your pics. you made a new mulch bed around what looked to be a tree stump, what did you use for that? Brown Bed Edger? Also, I know this will probably sound stupid but... where do you get those small green trash cans from?

Thanks
Ryan

Yea, they have them in Homedepot. They used to be 40.00 a few years ago, last year they were 45, and now their 49. I bag all my accounts and their a dream to use. I thought everyone used or had them.
