The Echo PAS with extended hedge trimmers keep me far away from the thorns. I was hoping you had found a PGR that worked on them. Atrimmec is a no go.

Oh ok Gotchya. Yea, I use pruners or loppers on bougie. The wood is too rough on trimmers imo.

cut less will not work on bougie.

Did this renovation job Saturday. This was the biggest section of the lawn. My buddy picked up the maintenance here but had me do the renovation work. Made some nice money on it. Really glad we did it now instead of may. These jobs aren't fun and they are a lot of labor.

This one is getting scalped and verticut on Thursday. Shouldn't be too bad since the lawn is only about 16 months old. I'm going to use my Hydrocut to scalp it. The lowest setting is 1.5" and I think that will be just low enough to scalp it.

Pretty excited. Going back to Greece July 17 for 2 weeks. It will be a great way to break the summer up. Going to take long weekends for Memorial Day and July 4th too. It is too damn hot in the summer down here to not have a couple long weekends.

Did the verticut and scalping on my one empire yard. Was able to scalp with my Hydrocut. Man was I wiped out after we finished.

Here's all the debris

Got another small section of that bougie done Tuesday. We just have one long row left. Really glad I'm doing this now instead of June/July

Just got the green light on a new account that came thru Angies List. We started with a little over $3-K of installation work and picked up the maintenance for $570/mo. Last guy was getting $400. Still have about another $7-K of install work to go.
