Thanks man. I like that wall rebuild you did. I really enjoy landscaping vs lawn mowing. It's just harder work and if I continue I need either help or machinery.

Thank you, I agree landscaping is my favorite also, especially the install work, wheather has been pretty crapppy this spring, it's almost like it's march right now. So the install design work is kind of approaching finally. I hope you have a good season, you do very good work and hope you get some good buisiness this year!

I've got some decent maintenance work coming up in very nice neighborhoods. I just find the REALLY nice neighborhoods are giving me the most headaches when it comes to job pricing. As in they dont want to pay. It's those people who have money but don't live in places like that that crave quality and pay for it. Hopefully those lead to referrals, which are the best leads.

Yea that cracked two years ago and if you look closer you'll see I've fashioned some metal plate to hold the tub down onto the handles. I have another 10cuft 2 wheeler that I believe is a true temper that has stood the test of time (of course by saying this it'll probably break soon). But yea those Jackson ones haven't help up as well. It still works so even if its butchered back together I'll still use it. I have had it for 7 years. The axles are bent but I just switch the "bent" direction so the wheels are not scraping the tub. It's a tool though and will eventually break. I've had more annoying breakdowns on powered equipment that costs thousands new vs a $120 wheelbarrow. I wont get rid of it until it truly falls apart. The thing I hate the most is forgetting to check the tire pressure here and there. Nothing like pushing around a flat tire wheelbarrow .

This is the type of job I really enjoy. Normal plantings, cared for beds, not a thousand pounds of leaves from 3 falls ago, and not a crazy amount of cleanup.

Really thinking about a powered edger such as a Little Wonder BedShaper. I know it only cuts the edge but that could save a ton of time in the event I need to do a job alone. Kicking a spade and then cutting the edge is low back destruction......
