Okay Mr Perfect Earth here goes !! I just bought some " Fluid Film " like whats in your picture. I do like my way with the " Orange Kutt " cleaner and " Stihl Bio chains saw bar oil " But your way would be a quicker method so I'll try it. I'm working on my biggest residential job I do and there is alot of evergreens which really gums tings up. I hope it works. This job takes 4 days with three guys. NO I'm not slow at trimming,its just a really BIG place ! I will blow the doors of any other company around here for speed or quality ! I love the precession of cars that slow down to watch me trimming 8' spiral junipers.
NOTE: Nice company name as its catchy! My company is Picture^Perfect.
Check out some pics of a some of my work on Facebook Picture Perfect Hedge and Shrub Trimming,Tree Service
The picture I posted was another place from last fall.Those trees are alot of work to gt them just right.

Are those mixed boxwoods all the same variety or are the globe ones different from the upright ones?

Thanks, got two hoses on a splitter in the backyard... one for hand watering and the other on a sprinkler. We've been pouring it on! I'll be back today to check on stuff but so far so good. The first waterings were just to soften the ground up so it could actually take in water!

The pyramidal ones are Green Mountains... the small ones are Green Velvets.

Some finished shots. Sorry I've posted so many pics of this job, it's tough to get a good angle of the whole yard and I know much of it is repetitive. So happy to be over and it looks great. A lot of green, but plenty of space for color next year.

I've never mowed sod so soon after it's been laid, but it had to be done. Might try to roll it tomorrow while we're out in the area to really get it going.
