We are lucky enough to have land available for dumping debris, so we pay $0. I couldn't bare to pay landfill charges!

Beautiful pics! Thats a sharp looking truck and trailer.
Do you always have the cap on the bed?
How long does it take to suck up the largest piles?
Do you just use blowers to cleanup or a mowers also?

Nice job guys! The lawns look very clean. A lot of guys around here just go over it with some type of w/b blower and leave it go thinking thats good enough. We go back through with b/p blowers and get the smaller stuff stuck in the ground. Those are the way lawns should look after a QUALITY clean up, again, nice job!

Beautiful lawns, beautiful setup. I really like your truck and trailer setup. Do you do lawncare fulltime, or is it on the side? I don't mean to pry, but most landscapers don't have caps on their beds. Do you keep the sides on your trailer all year, or just in the fall?
