Kind of an interesting set-up. This one is closer to the ground than most of them I see. As a result the gate isn't all that tall.

Aphids are doing our Crepe myrtles in. They end up with this guee mess all over each leave and eventually the leave will fall off. I started spraying a few weeks ago to keep them from getting into my flowers.

What kind of mulch is it? what is it running you a bag? We are getting hardwood at 2.95 a 3 CF bag which is not awesome but still an OK price.

WE get both cedar and regular.... the price varies i think around $1.75 for 2 cu. ft. bags. Never seen the 3 cu. ft. ones and the reason is with the local ground stuff it would be tooo heavy to handle.

If the 3 cu.ft. bags are dry then they aren't too bad to move around but when they get damp inside they are a pain. I hate paying more for a 2 cu.ft. bag than a 3 cu.ft. bag but they are way easier to deal with.

A few pictures of how things look here in August. We got the big rain in mid July and that in addition to our normal irrigation has things pretty green. I finally figured out the flower growing thing after 30 years. Now I have to work on presentation. Those crepes were great but now all of them got aphids. We got an account that has 80 and almost all of them are along their car parking ....a night mare.

This is the top dressing we are using that includes moisture product in the wheel barrow and the compost soil mix. We definitely are going to upgrade to a spreader and getting RID of that aerator. That thing is like driving a tank. Does great as long as you can stay in a straight line.

The TNLA Expo is this week Ed. Is anyone at your company going? I'm heading to Houston Wednesday afternoon for the pre EXPO educational stuff. I'm going to get my required CEU's for my applicators license. They have CEU's for irrigators as well.
