I hate those, found backflows with the handles rusted off. Could get one of those mole guards...

Here is one of my competitors.

But I must admit not a serious competitor.
He blew all this grass into the street, the driveway and sidewalks of the house he was mowing and the neighbors properties.
He should have his lawn mower taken away from him and beat about the head with a mower blade!



The next pic is how my company does it.

I'm the mower guy.


The HO uses a local liquid company.
Obviously NOT Tru Green.

If I remember the next time I mow I'll grab a pic.
I don't know who did the sprinkler set up, If I remember right he said the previous owner.
Current HO plans on having it rebuilt spring 2012.

Just out of curiosity, a FIRE hydrant?

And why a backflow, or do you mean a check valve; or is that the same thing in Virginia?

They are talking about banning blowers in Palm Bech County, Florida. GACK!
