    Do you guys ever take pics of your competition when they're working? It never hurts to keep an eye on your competition because you never know when you might just learn a new trick or two from them, such as the one below on a great way to prune a hedge.

    I'm guessing this is a joke, but now I can rest easy knowing I've seen it all now! LOL!

    I've seen guys shaping shrubs etc with trimmers, that's bad enough!

    Well, if anyone has the muscles to hold that up there and trim all those, more power to them.

    I saw that photo in an advertisement in the newspaper recently.

    Nice job of scanning the image...newspring can't be easy to scan cleanly.

    There was a guy who did that. He picked up his push mower to trim the hedge. A branch caught the blade which spun it. Which cut off the guys hand. He sued the company that build it and won. I don't remember who mower it was.

    I saw that in some retirement magazine a couple of weeks ago, I actually ripped it out and have it sitting on my desk with my papers. I was thinking of framing it just for a nice joke around the office
