    3.5 yards me and 2 buddys knocked out in less than 2 hours last week. I had to come through and de-weed all of these beds had weeds waist high. It was ridiculous, but I'm happy with the final product. Now I have the guy on Bi-weekly weed control too.

    Obviously the first pics are the beds prepped and sprayed with roundup. You can see all of the dead stuff I sprayed. Then there's the afters with all the mulch thrown down.

    It was $940 I believe. A guy about 1.5hr from me sells them in Brownsville I think it was? Anyway, he drove it into Memphis and met me, it was a sweet deal. Everything brand new, except used tires but in good condition. If you can get one with the dove tail and short gate, I'd highly recommend it. Gate is very light and dove tail leaves no room for mower scraping. It's a single 3500lb axle, and so far it has been perfect. I do want to get a full 6x16 as I get more equipment and work though.

    I also plan on pulling all of the dead bushes with weeds still growing throughout them in the last pic. The customer didn't even really seem to care. I think he just wanted it all killed and mulch to shut his wife up! lol

    Looks alright. Mulch is kinda lumpy looking and looks piled up around the base of some of the plants, did you edge the beds at all?

    Have to agree, first thing I noticed was the lack of edging. Not so much the "piled up mulch", but 3 people and only 3.5 yards of mulch, those beds should look a lot sharper.
