yeah when you mow 5 yards a week and get 30 cuts a season (150 cuts) they last. 20 years of mowing when you're only doing a few yards a week equals one year of what we do with roughly 105 yards a week. cheap mowers dont last.

A fresh planting and mulch at one of our commercial accounts. An overgrown job that we turned into a simple mulch bed and the largest landscape install that we did this year
