Gilmore Landscaping - Pictures/Work Thread

So since everyone else has one I figured why not start.

So this is my first official year in business, prior I was just doing misc jobs. I also still work for a Landscape Installation company in town doing design and office work, that often where you see the large installation job pictures coming from in other posts I make.

Mics pictures I have taken so far.

Small equipment.


New Stander


River Rock Job before


After


Mulch Job - can't find the before pics but they were just soil


Plugs from my Huquvarna Aerator

Thanks, cut a few laws with it last week. Runs great, but I realized after starting the first lawn (Mine) that it cuts about 1 inch lower then the rapid height gauge reads. I will need to fix that. Opps

Anyway here's a mulch job from this weekend. Other company quoted her 20 Yards, I did 15 and could have gotten away with 13.

Looks good if the other company was going to do 20 yards and you could have gotten away with 13 they must have been putting it on a foot deep.
