If your contract calls for plowing or salting you do it. While you wait til noon til it melts someone falls and u get sued. You need some better contracts if this is your mentality

Bed edging

Bed edging can be a very time consuming. I am stunned that some Companies offer it free with a mulch job. We price by the foot and the pricing depends on the existing edge. Have a bed edger that works well or use AM Leonard steel edging shovels. How bout the rest of you?

yea i believe everyone up north.....is waiting to get this season started. But all i was simply saying is, if one gets desparate, takes desparate measures and goes after unnecessary profits to make ends meet then its simple....good luck (i personally would never do that), with the exception of contracts as said before

Have to say i would never stiff my residentials though. Im smarter than that and i really love this business. I didnt get into this to put a bad name on LCO's................its ok now though, we can see the areas everywhere that were over done (salted) Now i imagine someone has to sweep up all that mess.
