Is this the time you parked to the time you drive away...?

What about blowing product off walks and driveways?

So many of the walls are tipping where I cut. They are on soft ground, one even had the gutter dump running into them so to water the shrubs, but just added pressure and blew out the wall.

Alot of the places i mow, i also plant annuals as wanted/needed. I have access to a good selection of top quality plants, so for a small amount of time spent planting, i can more than double what i make on the lawn job itself.
