Some of my work. BHS LAWNCARE & LANDSCAPING

Here are a few pics of a sod job I just did and clearing of an overgrown railroad track.
This is my second season in business. I have worked for two school districts doing grounds work and have always loved cutting grass and most all other aspects of lawn care and landscaping, so I decided to buy a cheap homeowner zero turn and trailer. Now I have a 36" exmark WB, commercial weedeaters and blowers and I have slowly but surly gotten more business, which is going pretty god for this only being my second year.(I think)
I plan on putting pics of my equipment on here in a little bit. Thank you for looking.

Looks good But on your sod job you should edge/taper a long the curb, down about 1'' so the sod lays below the curb and even a long exciting grass do the same.
So when its mowed you wont feel a bump where ever the sod starts and ends. So Sod is at same grade as the exciting grass
