A few pics from today.... my neighborhood entrance 'wave' petunias. Not MY neighborhood, but one I service.

Thought you'd like to see where I dump. Nice view! Old quarry... The brush and compostables are in another area. I take smaller loads to a different property (where I lease land) but all the major loads go here.

A new project- Been trying to get to these people since last fall. Front yard re-do and now it looks like the back will be done as well since the owners are doing a major remodel with the rear patio/kitchen.

Tore out the two huge taxus out front and a HUGE on on the side by the garage. The Dingo won. I got lucky though- the one's flanking the front door were on 7-8 inch stumps. Can't believe the Dingo popped them. Had a stump grinder lined up, but called and said I got it!

Removing the awkward front walk and doing a straight shot paver walkway and re-doing the stoop. Working with my paver guy. I need to start doing pavers! This job will be a process- they won't have me prep and plant now, as they are putting hardy board on the entire house and painting. Might be a few months before the landscape happens.

Here's a house I've started to maintain. I worked on landscaping this house over 10 years ago! I maintained it at my prior job for about 5 years and she called me a while ago and wanted me to start it up again under by business. Really nice place, on a small lake, backyard is great too. Awesome little cottage feel with cozy landscaping.

A decent gutter trenching job on that house I'll be at on and off for a while. making the mess now. It's all cleaned up and fine now.

Had to get trenching permits and a tree preservation meeting for this. The arborist had me trench right by the Tulip Poplar, as her chosen path. ....just wanted to throw that out there before anyone jumped me! I was shocked. But didn't really hit too many large roots.

Did a nice little 4-section job for some nice folks... we're trying to build up the property line a but denser and create some outcroppings to break up some bad views. And a little foundation tear-out and re-do. Don't have before pics, but with I did. This is a huge property!

Found some great Schip Laurel, HUGE Juddi Viburnums, and a couple great Hemlocks. the Clump Redbud is nice too.

Some more.... I did not suggest the stone edging. They have it all around the house- and once aged and dirty, it actually looks pretty good. They asked if I would do the house for Spring next year. No grass, but the landscape maintenance... Gonna add more plantings in the Fall too.

Perfect Earth, I can only say one thing, all your work looks perfect, and I haven't found a better word then perfect, you are truly a perfectionist.
