I thought a sidewalk is city property and is there responsibility to keep it functional. Oh well, you did a really nice job on it and it gave you some business! Nice job!

ya, i hope i can get a dump trailer someday, but first i want to get another truck. one good thing is we have a little john deere tractor 410 with a front bucket goes right on the trailer, so it made quick work of unloading.

ok, here are a few after pics i toke today. i went back and pulled & dug up weeds for about 2.5 hours (give or take wasn't in big hurry on saturday).
hopefully they can afford mulch, so this will look a lot better. total time spent around 10 hours by myself. i can't spend too much time cause i will start next week on there other day care center that is in about the same shape. they are on a monthly maint plan with me, so trying to budget time spent with each property(plus takeing a loss on clean ups the first month), but at same time make them look right for me to have my truck sitting there. be gentle with me on the reviews, i have about 15 more properties of theres to whip in to shape.
