    thats nice... I am wanting to put a bid on one in my area come October. If you don't mind me asking, how large of a property is that and what is your cost for that? Crew sizes and things like that. Thanks

    yeah the headstones are the worst part about this job....now i trim around them, spray roundup around them, then when the grass dies i go back through and knock all the dead grass off....seems to work pretty well, still have to trim but not half as often.
