Pictures from a small install/design we did today. There were a total of 62 plants ranging from 1-5gals. Nothing extreme, customer wanted low maintenance and affordable. These are the kind of jobs that gets me new equipment; Simple, fast, in and out in 3 hours and more profit than 30 average lawns worth of mowing.

Man your stuff is so clean all the crome is polished, the tires armor alled up. Trucks dont have a spec of dirt on them. I love the way you run things.

Last week all three blowers weren't working as they should, took it back to have it fixed, worked good for a couple days, then same problem again. Took it back one more time and told myself and the mechanic at my dealer that I will never buy another echo again unless is near free. For now on, its STIHL everything. Our fs110r's and br600 never gave any problems in 2 years, I went with echo because they were a little stronger, but its not worth the stress when your guys are calling you 10-20 miles away because equipment is not working right.

Also, after demoing a few different brands, I decided that I will go with toro grandstand, exmark vantage or exmark TT's for mowers. We will be buying them in the next few weeks, probably a 48", 52" and 60". I will post some pictures when I pick them up.

I figured you guys were tired of seen mulching job pictures so I stopped posting them. That's 80% of what we will be doing until the end of March, the other 20% are trimming, leaves removal and small installs that I don't go to. I will post pictures of installs or other services when we complete them!
where did you get that gas tank. I have the same one used on my trailer. The trigger leaks though

Thanks man! My image is extremely important to me. I was raised in an extremely clean and organized environment, so for me is natural.

Yes and no. I began with an identical truck but started having engine problems. I decided not to put money into it and found this one for sale very cheap. I wanted to buy a new truck at the time but we don't always get what we want right? Plus, I never had disappointments with Dodges.
