Maybe mow with Honda at your house until you are sure the employees won't destroy it

You know you are pressing toooo hard when this happens The blade dropped out gone...... I hit a big rock that the dam homeowners threw over the fence and thought I just bent the blade. So I pushed on. When I got to the trailer and on the ramp no blade. But when I backed off the ramp the blade and bolt had dropped free. It wasn't bent just had to get nut and spacer and away I went.

Chuys Arbor Trails

More roses--they like the wild 'natural' look and want the stuff to grow up tall so there is a wind break/make the patio more intimate--trim bushes once every 4 months

Hand watering of flowers

drip irrigation and cotton burr in soil allowed these to remain hydrated in summer of 2011..though had to hand water once per week when restriction went into effect-
