We got a pretty deep all access private tour at one of the top 3 teams shops, I'm not gonna say who, what, where or post pics because this is the internet after all and I'm not even sure if we were really supposed to see some of the stuff we saw, but I will say it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

Nope just some different latches. The gate could really be a foot longer, I believe its only a 5' gate, thats what the blocks of wood on the end are for to hold it up a little to make the angle from the ramp to the deck a little better. The Standers were catching on it really bad. My 12' trailer has a 6' gate on it and although its a bit heavier, it makes all the difference in the world getting equipment on and off.

Well since its raining (again) I have some time to update....Been way behind with work with all this rain, but just keep plugging away with more landscaping and of course doing the lawns. I havent been taking too many pictures I just keep forgetting.

Heres a small portion of a job that we were on for almost 2 weeks on and off, this was all completely overgrown with brush and dead vegetation. This is only a small aspect of the rest of the work we did at this property, there was close to 2 yards of mulch, some new plantings, a LOT of trimming (and hacking), a couple trees came down, etc. This first one the bed on the right was completely overgrown with ivy and myrtle. The left side had a hedge row of taxus that was all dead. We cleaned it all out and installed the boxwoods. and cleaned up the rose bush a little bit.


This pic is around the backside of where the pool is, there was all kinds of dead and overgrown bushes and weeds and stuff I've never even seen before growing in there. We installed the plastic edging and the landscape stone.


Overall on this job we installed close to 1,000 feet of the black plastic edging. The place is still a mess and theres a lot more work that COULD be done there, but just what we did was a huge step for the customer in getting things cleaned up. I'll have to remember to take pics of the front next time we are there mowing. I know theres pictures of the house that would be like a "before" reference in with my fall cleanup pics somewhere.

As far as new purchases go, I think I mentioned this but I picked up another Stander. I got it from a buddy of mine, who bought it from the original owner. It is a 61", 23 hp. As far as I know it has had the entire deck replaced at some point (not sure why), and its on its second motor. It has 28,000 hours on it and it runs fantastic hydros are good and everything. We have been using it a lot. Its old, maybe one of the first prototypes Wright ever made lol


And I finally bought myself a Turfco edger! Again, its older but works great. The previous owner really took care of it. I wish we had this for when we installed all that edging at the job I mentioned above!




And after all these years I finally put the finishing touch on my truck, a chrome rear bumper

Before anyone asks, in regard to the block yes we dug everything out and put the proper base in I just wanted to lay a few blocks in to see how it was going to look before we got too into it.

I used to have a '92 Mustang and I had EVERYTHING done to it, it was a beast. When I decided to get really serious about the landscaping business, I sold it to invest money into the business and finally I was able to buy another 5.0 Mustang.

My truck is a 2006 2500HD I have no idea what part number the back rack is.
