Mulch Pics

Here are some pics of a job we did today. We mowed and cleaned it up first and then installed 5 yards of black mulch. I got some pics of my foreman Rafael mowing.

No offense as the landscaping certainly doesn't help, and I'm sure you were told what to do mulch color wise...... but that looks terrible. The black looks good against certain colors... and that house is not in one of those colors. Not slamming your work at all that looks fine, but the landscaping looks terrible.

Tell Rafael I like his hat

Ya i know the yard is a mess. We had all the leaves cleaned up before we mulched but then when we where finished the wind started picking up. I honestly think the landscaping is **** but he just wanted to mulch because he is trying to sell it. Trust me it looks a thousand times better than it did.

Classic: I love the fingers in the shot.
Just a tip for next time: Try keeping your fingers out of the shot.
Just Kidding The mulch looks good and I like you taste in mowers.
