So I get a call from a guy who has given me 7 accounts and he asks me to cut his tow yard and warns me its a "little" overgrown and that it needs to get cut asap because he is running out of room to park cars.

After my first pass



Second pass and trying to get it taken down some so I can get a clean cut.




Finished product and this entire lot in the back that you see wat 3-4 ft tall and was dence, wet and full of weeds with thick stems that really needed a brush cutter but I dident think it was going to be that bad but when I pulled up I was like OMG what did I agree to.

In the first page where you said you tilled the flower beds to prep them; wouldnt that just keep all the weeds there and the roots intact? I hate going into beds and either pulling everything by hand or taking a shovel to them. I am trying to find a much more effective/quicker way.

Thank you

Well we still go pull everything and make sure the roots and weeds are out of the soil but the tiller will rip just about everything up and out and then you will have loose soil to sift through and then grade I think its a lot faster and more efficent way of doing things.........imo
