Outdoors-Unlimited picture thread

So I thought I'd take the time to make a thread that I could post pictures in, and maybe gain a few fellow industry friends from around the world to bounce ideas off of, so here it is.

First, little bit about me.

I've been in the green industry almost exclusively since I've been 12 years old mowing lawns in my neighborhood, to getting a job with a lawn guy at 14, moving to his cousin's lawn business (fully legit) at 18 and becoming a lawn foreman. I worked on and off for him until I started my company in 2009 as a DBA. Every year until then I plowed for him. When we would have a disagreement, I would have a job somewhere else in the industry. I did a season with a hardscape company, three years for a tree company, and tried to get a tree service going for three seasons but got burned out on it.

At my final point with his company I was pretty much topped out in pay, and had four crews under me basically.

So one winter I took my tax check, and bought a 5 year old Exmark Viking 48 and slowly have built from there.

I now have a pretty decent lawn trailer set up, with a 36" Metro, the 48" Viking, and a push mower. Will be adding a used 52" TT soon (already a secured deal just need a bit more cash)

Anyhow, here's a few pics of what Outdoors Unlimited is.

A pic of the work truck, the 48" and the 52" I'm buying at my newest account.

The newest account when we rolled up for the initial cut of the sod. 23 man hours later it looked like the second pic.

A tree job done after a tornado hit locally. I have hundreds of tree pictures because I always had a love for it, and its fun.

The first install I did under my own name. Installed during my tree service days, then these pics are from a mulch, ornamental trim job a few years later.

Well, now I need to get more pics to Photbucket to share.

My specialty is high end resi maintenance. I do everything except the fert for most of my clients. Only have ~24 accounts, with 4 of them being large full service accounts with extensive gardening.

The lakeside of our newest estate job.



And I purchased the TT!! I hadn't planned a new mower until next fall, but this summer went better than expected!! We're starting to look like a legitimate crew.

A ledgestone job we repaired this week. While not completely up to my standards, it is in much better shape than it was, and we completed it at the budget line for the client. I haven't got a set of completed pics yet, but here's a preview.
