Thanks for noticing, I built the pergola a few years back now, it has speakers wired up and also a light hidden between the supporting beams for some down-lighting at night, there is also a switch that controls each separately, so you can listen to music or turn it off without going inside, also there is 4 in-lite flush mount leds in the patio underneath, looks cool at night. Nothing fancy it was a summer project before I started this business. Pus an air-chair (my favorite spot to relax).

Got a few from today.

1. & 2. Recently re-did the laundry room/garage entrance, everything is new except the floor tiles. (washer/dryer, sink, faucet, plumbing, cabinets, back splash, trim, crown moulding, paint, etc, etc.

3. & 4. Added wing nut to the turf tracer deck covers, comes in handy for changing a bad belt.

5. Deck belt from turf tracer, funny it had been like this for a while, with winter here it was time for a new one, I ordered the hydro & clutch belt but they seemed fine and also looked like a pain the replace, the deck belt was easy.

6. Pic of the snow-blower fleet. How many snow-blowers does a solo one man operation need? The answer is 3.

I only have a few fall clean-up pictures. They are from my blackberry. First year with a leaf loader, works pretty good, especially being solo. Beats dumping pales into the trailer or trying to drag the tarp up the ramps or over the sides I has last year. I just wish it was a dump, lol.

You have a lot of really nice looking landscape pictures. I'm really impressed. Being a solo op- do you find mowing or landscaping more profitable?

I think the small landscaping projects are fairly profitable, it really depends on how long it ends up taking me, however mowing is still my bread and butter and can easily profit just as much, however there is more driving and stops involved. Howver other projects take time to qoute, get materials, dump fees, etc, etc. I only cut lawns 3 days a week (about 45 or so) this year and did other landscaping the other 2 days, I'm still growing so I wasn't at maximum capacity. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I'm also solo operator and mow 35 yards and do the occasional landscaping projects. Ive always found it more difficult to landscape alone opposed to mow alone. I didn't know if that was just me or if that was common
