I think they were just commenting on the quality of a man's charaacter who does such things. I agree.

One small exception: the equally low life scum bag who makes no effort to secure their rudimentary little marketing effort to the door or mailbox. That is nothing but premeditated litter (which, I believe should be a felony)!

Thats crazy, naming your own price. Hell i should tell him 5.00 a lawn and give him all my accounts and sit back and collect a check. Yea right, I wouldnt have any accounts at the end of the year, probally hack them all up. Its getting pretty stupid out in the field. It happens every season though, this is nothing new. Good luck

I have only seen a few flyers @ my house this year. Usually its jam packed. I think some of the unemployed going around while collecting benefits have run out and actually had to go get a job. Might not be as bad this year

Looking for a liquid storage tank

Hey guys my work partner asked me to Post an ad on here...hes (maybe WE..If this works) looking for a Liquid storage tank, like a Tote... PM me if you do.
Last year we cut his grass every week. Since it was always watered etc. Then he got the bill and almost passed out! ( i mean Water Bill)

So he showed me his plan for this year....He plans to use a Tote to hold Screened Gutter and sump pump water>> There into a Sprinkler pump (1/2 HP) >>To his in ground system....Each zone has 3 sprinklers...Also he only cares about his front yard... so I think its like 2 lawns zones and one flower bed zone.

Do you guys think this would work? I think if it does it would be a nice and Eco friendly.... Might have to do this at my house too! lol
