Don't you just hate it when your HOA goes and get someone else to do a job and don't let you bid. Can't get around the new board member having friend that can give you a deal

This landscaper didn't like knock out roses so she pulled them out of the new beds and planted them along this wall. We had to get drip to them or they would have died. We tapped into her bed.

Found at later the other board members were not consulted and property mgr a little miffed. The idea was install this and see what members thought then proceed to do other 12 beds. Well it looks nice.

Bagging season done putting the mulch kit back on sentar. A little tricky for one person, had to tie one side up with irrigation wire. I kinds laugh when people talk about needing a special jack and jackstands.

Don't know how y'all handle the dust with the mulch kits in. Dust is the one reason I hate my job.

Now if you guys were up here in the north you wouldn't have to worry about dust until July or august. The dust I hate is from leaves

Jim, it's dusty from now till October. Sometimes later depending on the rain situation. One of the reasons we are moving to more high end stuff, even though commercial/industrial clients are nice. Even some of our "high end" customers have dusty patches. The leaves make it worse. You pretty much have a constant sinus infection for at least a week until you get used to it.
Ed, can't handle the masks. Think I'm going to go to a bandana or one of those head wraps.

Glasses are orange county chopper and mask are dirt bike related. The goggles Re tight and mask doesn't cause any fogging in cool situation. No more cool for us into 90F from now on to october.
