Western PA Landscapers!

Ahh halfway there! We got 11 out of 12 for the day. Was going to be an early Friday anyway, so the guys were happy about that. Now I'm off to the Jason Aldean concert! Later guys

I got very wet about 11:45, but got back out about 4:00 and worked until 7:00. I got done what I needed. I didn't want any spill-over to Saturday because I have a large trimming job. I wanted a large block of time (e.g. all day) in order to get the job done. The forecast looks to be a perfect work-day on Saturday.

I used the interlude to get new tires on my truck. They had been at the shop for a few days, waiting for a break in my work schedule. At least part of the delay time was not wasted.

Anyone in the North Hills interested in a hedge trimming job?

Unfortunately, I have no details. (such as size of job)

Someone emailed me after finding me online and asked for a hedge trimming quote. He's on Louise St. 15237

I declined, as I'm in Penn Hills and it doesn't work with my schedule to travel that far at the moment.
He asked if I could recommend anyone in the N. hills.

If interested, send me a PM with your number and I'll forward your info to the potential client.

If he's in a time crunch I could likely get it done Tuesday after Labor Day, not trying to take it away from you Scott!

Mulched first leaves of the season today. Red Crimson King Maple, ... some dried leaves had fallen last week, but I mowed through them, ending with a bit of windrow. Today, there were many more, so I mulched them first, then mowed across.

Last week was the best $$$ week since June 1, but growth rates are fading fast. Rain, rain, rain, ... need some now to keep things growing.

Billing looks very good for august. Since there was 5 wed and Thursdays I had 5 billable services for many customers. All my yards are back to growing except for 2.
