Starting back in 1988, 5 years on golf courses had me dodging lawn accounts. Around 1986 I was a crew leader for a commercial maintenance company, but following 1988, I just stuck to pruning, planting, landscaping changes, etc.. No monthly maintenance. The place below, started with a tree planting issue, which I will post a pic of later. I posted this in starting, because this start in landscape maintenance stems from incorrect tree care, failure to prune foliage, and incorrect placement of sprinkler heads. The basics are: 16,000 square feet of lawn. About 1/3 acre of shrub bed area A big berm that needs a few hours of weed whacking a few times per year. Some minor pruning to 400 newly planted trees and shrubs 2.8 acres among the field habitat area that need rough mowing 2 times yearly General weed control stuff, and minor sprinkler adjustments. Purchased 2 Exmark 30" commercial mowers, and 1 Exmark 21" commercial mower.
