Hedge Trim Job

Heres one I did today. 14 tiny balls, and 1 tree shaping. Total time 1.5 hours (solo). Man what a pain in the butt, it was all red stones in the bed, and of course almost all of the hedges touched the rocks.

Just felt like sharin'

Really shouldnt trim till after June 1, typically thats when new growth slows down. and they hold shape a bit longer. Looks good , Just an FYI

I trim whenever the customer says they need trimming. Its not a regular mowing customer, she called me for just the trimming only.l

I planned on going out @ 10:30 once the sun had a chance to work a little, but now the forcast looks like its changing to showers all day, so I guess Im still playing it by ear right now. The extended forcast had chance of rain everyday for the next week, so I dont want to put it off if I can cut.

Well, just got back. Went out at 11:30, so I got 5 hours in. I got everything cut but 5 houses, they are all together on the same street, its about 1.5 hours worth of work for me. Should be able to get 'em tomorrow (weather permitting ) Also got an overseeding and dethathing lined up too if the rain holds out long enough.
