That's crazy that you're still able to blow leaves! I'd be worried to drive my equipment on that paver driveway

We had snow for awhile. Thankfully it melted so we can finish all of the work scheduled for this year. Why would you be worried about driving on it? Driveways are made to be driven on haha.


A.T.T- I've got 3 reg cab ford pickups, 2 of which are 7.3 diesels and I love them. The tacoma is the 2.7. It's a little less than what I'm used to driving given my other vehicles but it fills the position of being a fuel effecient vehicle that can transport odds and ends and be an overall good "boss man" truck haha.

any of our trucks are nowhere near enough to break pavers. the only time i would be concerned about that is if i had to have a tandem or quad axle come in to deliver materials

Today we planted this monster 25' red maple. The ball on it was around 5.5' and weighed in around 2500#. Thank god we had a bobcat t650 on site to help. This tree was one of the largest that the nursery we use sold this year.

Nice man this past year we did a 18 footer without a machine. Needless to say it was a bear but it is so much nicer to work with mature plants than little stuff it really makes an instinct impact...
