*&!) bees! *&!* bees! I would punch bees in the face! (Dane Cook) Last week I took a swipe under a wheelchair ramp at a customers house, bees don't care much for having thier domain ruined by a trimmer and proceeded to let me know...took 5 stings to the arm, and 1 to the face..... #$!! bees!

Thought I would share some pix. This was the former home of Bob Seger's sax player that has been empty for several years. My gardeners spent 3 days weeding the beds and filled a 30 yd roll off box.

Metro - they did a pretty nice job. Hope you reward them. I especially liked the weeds in front of the fence.

Wow that sucks, sorry.
I've been offered a postion with them (as I very long story short live in Gen. Co.and am looking for work in the green industry) But I'm looking for insight and comments. (concerning the land bank)
GOOD LUCK ON YOUR CASE!

Hey John where was that estate? Was that Alto Reed's place? ...... had a few of those clean-outs myself these days. Sad isn't it? Some beautiful places.... just neglected and overgrown like you wouldn't believe.
