Here's the latest and greatest, a 50-hour weeding job. We filled our dump trailer and a pickup, packed full of weeds. Never seen so many.

This was at a Ford supplier building in Dearborn, pretty sad that all of their places look like this, but they dont have the $$ to keep them up.

LOL, that is what I was thinking about the mulch or pre-emergent.

Looks excellent.

Was it all by hand?

Looks like a weedeater followed by a hula-hoe would be good for that job.

There was a lot more pictured, that was maybe 1/5 of it. It was all done by hand, also used a loop hoe to get the little stuff.

I'm going to try and sell them on mulch to keep it looking good, honestly I doubt they'll go for it.

Because I am obsessed with this weeding job, here's two more.

First is just another area we weeded, second is a picture of what just about everything looked like before we started. Jungle! I need to go there this weekend and get some good pics of everything now that it's done.

Here's the start of Lawn Pro in 2001, I was 11 and just bought my Crapsman rider. Then in 2003 I got a new Exmark Metro 48.

I was a little guy, had no business riding around the neighborhood mowing lawns.. haha!

Here's the plow line-up for this year. They're begging to be used!
