My first big leaf mulching job

This was a "once only" job I was wanting to try out the leaf mulching attachments that came with my 16' Toro 580-D
I mowed it first. then put on the mulching attachments and mulched the leaves. I'd like to get this as a regular account.

From inside the grove of trees.

This is from inside those same trees. Looking toward his brother's house. The trees are mostly shell bark hickory so there weren't a giant amount of leaves. The white house is on the same property. I'd really like to have this as a regular account.

Man it looks good, I'd like to have it as a place to live.

The city I live in has the big Toros for doing all the parks and grass areas and they are tough mowers. You made that place look good, how big is it (acres)?

Looking back toward the road from the houses

OK last pic. Yeah I know that one stripe is crooked. It was undulating ground. Can you tell I'm anxious to get this account?

It looks much better in person. It's just too big to fit into pictures. Things get too small to see. Here's a pic from the end of the runway looking back toward the hangar and the houses. The little woods in the center of the pic to the left of the runway is their yard. 30 acres of sod measured with my GPS.
I can see this place from my driveway. Really nice people. They've been to my home. If I can't live there I'd at least like to mow it once a week.
