happy striping!

Nope, some of those pics were high rise excaliburs and the fall cleanups were gator mulchers. If you want to keep your lawns looking green in the drought season raise that deck up as far as you customers will allow. We cut the grass up to 3 1/2 inches up here in the dry season, and still keep it at 3 inches in the cool season. We are not into apps really, although we will put down some fert. if the customer asks. Most around here are serviced by a large local named Vitagro and, of course, trugreen. I think most of ours are taken care of by vitagro, although I don't really keep track. Ed might know

All of our equipment in one picture. Short a few things, but this pretty much sums up all of the power equipment we own.

We just started mowing again today, and we are taking pictures of the new accounts this next week. Hopefully we'll be posting them sometime next week.

Sorry for the stupid Q, but what's the technical term for the kind of building that's behind your equipment? I've heard them called 'pole barns' but never understood the 'pole' part. I'd like to put up something like that up on some property I'm looking at to use for storage and a shop.

Do people heat buildings like that or is a waste of time because they're not well insulated? Thanks.

They are called pole barns because they are made of poles: 6x6's,2x4's, etc.

You can heat them but only if you insulate them first which will cost you alot of $$! Ours is not insulated, just sheet metal.
