    Here is a small lawn that was a little over grown. Told the lady 30 bucks to cut it, line trim and blow off hard surfaces. I just got a stick edger and NOONE around here edges so i did the walk in front of her house and up to her house. I got done and asked if she liked the job and that i was done. It ttok me about 45 min to do the whole job. Here are a few pics. Edging makes such a big difference. :)

    People don't always realize how good its going to look until you actually do it.
    Looks much better by the way.

    Amazing, isn't it. Such a difference with one simple (well, sometimes) operation. It's like the "finishing touch". I guess you can compare to Armorall on the tires of a detailed auto. It just makes a big difference on the finish.

    Looks great. What the heck is that white pimple growing out of the center of the lawn?

    Great job there!!

    Nothing like a satisfied customer to make you feel good about your job.

    Now, I am sure you are going to report that tip to the IRS?? :rolleyes:
