Beatsworking Work Thread

I told myself I wasn't going to bother with another picture thread but here we are.
Background:
2012-borrowed my uncle's truck to get started, bought a push mower and trimmer from home depot. I had never mowed a yard before then. Halfway through the year my dad bought a 4.3 silver ado and let me use it, and I bought a 92 deere 48" walk behind. Had about 5 accounts at this point. Worked 8:00-4:00 as a lifeguard in the summer.
2013-bought the zero turn, 6x12 trailer and sold walk behind, worked about 1.5-3 days a week. Worked retail at hollister as a "model" just for kicks, lasted one month.
2014-horrible spring, lost a few key clients, truth be told never been that broke. Managed to fill schedule and started to begin landscape work, no big purchases.
2015 so far. Put in my biggest bid to date on landscape related work, working for commercial applicators certification, bought a f250, decided to try out a storage locker, doing a big makeover on website. Hope to make a big push for online marketing as well as print.

Now the good stuff everyone wants. Pictures.

Looks really nice man! How's the storage locker working out? I have to get one before June at the latest. What size did you get?

I've only had it a week but so far its the best option. I got a 10x30 and the size is plenty I just wish it was an actual shop where I could leave me truck and trailer outside

Couldn't agree more, they might be the ugliest bushes i've ever seen. Nasty thorns too
