Not possible to keep them out of the sun and it takes out the stihl straps. And they are very costly. Do you have a model that you use?

I have 2 SG 20's. One for non selective herbicide (landscape beds & cracks in lots/driveways/sidewalks) & selective herbicide in the other for the smaller lawns & areas unreachable from a skid sprayer.

Spring is in the air

This guy is napping until busy time around 5. The other pictures of a small landscape and mulch. We planted a couple pear trees . They had us pull out a couple big trees that we planted 2 years ago.. they didn't like when the leaves came out in spring. these HOA are a constant challenge. A couple years ago we had to start emptyi ng the cans of wrapped up po and resupply the bags. Don't ask me why that wasn't a property manager job. The big light went out on that granite sign and I got that job.

I notice the traffic signal lights are sideways there. Are they all like that in Texas? I ask because here they are installed upwards.
