Thanks guys. Yea I designed that bench with that in mind can fit up to a 48 under it from the side. Working out of a single stall garage gotta go up for space. I'll be sure to get work photos up once I start for the year.

Just as i thought we were done with snow got hit with another storm today. Luckily didn't get the 9 inches predicted but did end up with a nice ice slush mix of about 3 inches. Cant complain about the money but safe to say i would be ok if we were done with snow for the year.

Finally starting to feel like spring time again here. Got 1000 door hangers out in the last couple weeks and the phone is finally starting to ring. That makes me pretty happy. Got ten bids lined up going to try and hit them yet today if not first thing tomorrow. I also landed 5 more weekly accounts one of which is a double cut twice a week pay upfront don't want to have to hear from you again until next spring account. He is now sending me to bid his dads place as well. Season is starting to look up and starting to see the fruit of my labors from the last two years of working my butt off to get 1-2 phone calls much less ten in one week. I credit a lot to the information i have learned on this site over this past winter. Thanks a lot guys!

Busy week ahead of me but i am excited for it. Have 5 good size clean ups, about 15 aerations, 30 plus yards to oversees and/or fertilize. And landed a retaining wall about 3 feet high by about 15 feet long with stairs that i hope to start on Thursday and finish up friday. On top of that i need to get in and get a new phone so i can start taking pictures of my work and get it up here for you all to critique.

Just got a call for another pretty good account. Its a two acre yard that needs work. Would you guys even attempt to dethatch that with a walk behind or should i rent something bigger to use?
They also want a garden area taken out and sod put in. Now we just need the sod to be ready already have two decent size sod jobs lined up.
THe other project they want done is completely redo the landscaping surrounding the house. right now it has rail road ties as a border with river rock and they want it all taken out and Brick and mulch put back in.

I just load my photo's in my picture file, and re-size (Microsoft Picture it has a button you click for re-sizing them to just the right size) all pictures right after I load them having both available if I decide to post any of them.

The in your post when you hit Browse you will be able to go to your file and click on the resized photo's you would like to post.

Then you have to click the up-load button and it takes about 20-30 seconds to show them up-loaded.

Hit preview and it should show them.
