Townhouse Yard work and equipment pics

I just officially started this company in April, but I've been working unofficially for four years now, doing work for family and friends, and having 3 customers on the side I did small landscape chores and snow removal for. I love landscaping, and I'm planning on going to college for a horticultural degree. Anyway, I've worked on single family home landscapes, but since I live in a Townhouse neighboorhood, and I don't have a driver's licensce yet or a truck, it is just easier for me to base my business within walking distance from my house.

Sorry for the long description. I'm currently working on a house that is about to go on the market. The back yard was litterally a jungle when I walked in the first time. I had done some heavy trimming before I remembered to take pictures, but you can still get the idea.

Yes all the beds will mulched and edged. I'll get the after pics posted when its all done, which will be another 10 days or so. I'm waiting on a tree company to get in there and remove a tree and trim the giant bush you saw in the pics.

I've done other work too, besides landscaping. While I was doing some landscaping on the side, and being high school, I also had a part time job on the weekends working at a huge garden center. While there I was a cashier, I loaded cars with bagged mulch or whatever customers bought, I stocked plants, restocked shopping carts, and learned a ton. But my favorite was loading bulk mulch and top soil into contractors trucks. Here are a few pics of the loader I drove:

Update

An update for you all:
My main job I started the thread with is going to take a little longer since the tree company got rained last Wedsnesday, so they are coming this Wednesday instead. In the mean time, I have to complete a bed clean-up, and a shurb trimming job. So I got the bed clean-up job done this morning, before the rain that is supposed to come through.
Here is the before pics:

I like that Valvo, the place where I buy mulch has one like it.
Good to hear your planning on collage. Keep it up.
