Ok, I can't get anything else to load besides the last after pictures. So, this is what it looks like now. Everything was ripped out, and the beds were mulched and edged. What do you all think? I am going back with a chain saw to take out all of the stumps, so those will be removed, and some plants will be going in the space in the fall.

Additionally, at the same property, I mulched the adjacent beds in the front yard.

Next up, I have spring cleanup/planting job, 4 or so mulch jobs, and possibly a full install. Looking like its going to be a full year.

Things are looking up for me. Just got asked to bid on a gravel and paver installation, as well as a spring clean-up and mulch job. I am going to go look at a used 2005 Ford Ranger extended cab V6 4WD after school today. Hopefully that will work out, as I really need a truck. I will just have to see how it goes. Comments and questions are welcomed.

Good news. Just bought that Ford Ranger I was talking about. I will post a picture of that later in the week. This past weekend I had some mowing, leaf removal, and bed leveling all at one property. Next week, I put in some plants and mulch at the same place. I can't seem to get any pictures to load, so i will be looking at photobucket.

That's just how I started man! I was doing what you were doing in high school and used the same Toro mower! You're on the right path man and if you stick with it you can really have a good, solid business! Keep up the work
