------------see perfect ask for help on his post but hasnt given any information to allow anyone to acctually help i could show him how a 30 hour turned to 100 in a heartbeat if he would talk lol -----------------

I love advice , but dont insult , laught , then joke and moke me ( after that you offer your advice? what advise have you offered bud, no insult i work my ass off like you do and I do respect you only if you work in the field, but city I am in i have learned I have learned I have been braking record stakes, but to be honest with you most people in this line of work are not so bright, easy in , easy money. To some making enought to pay 600.00 rent , beer, some 8th bowls, ok some strip joints and they are happy. IN my opinion someone in this line of work should eat better then MCdonalds everyday , drive better car then a 10-25 year old piece of shi* truck , have a trailer that stayes in one piece with both fenders and lights and live a middle class or above men lifestyle. Do you really thing we work as much or as hard as guys on sallary or wage doing 50-95k a year????
I dont f 'n think so. You work your balls off day in and day out, you work before your employees do and after they do, Do you even charge your client for that time or not , or it is all a freebie.

PTL, Trimming bushes too often can and will cause problems down the road. You will eventually be left with a green shell and the plant will loose its vigor. Also it will create problems with air circulation which can lead to disease. Do you also do selective pruning? If not, I would advise it. )

I do selective prunning , i am starting to learn that some customers no matter how much you sell then on proper quatity of prunning of shrubs they will cutt in in betweet and others no matter how much i tell them we should give plants time to grow they want them scuplure like. Well I realize advicing some one and following up with results is two different things. By the way did you know that National Landascape Lifespan is 7-9 years, so why the f*** do we try so hard to make them live when their hearbeat has stoped long time ago?
