    Here are some before pictures of the field we just re-did. You actually had to mow where the dirt had to be...kinda funny.

    What park is that?

    Did you just trim it and then put dirt on top?

    most of our baseball fields around here have about a 10' sand "runway" between Home and 1st, and Home and 3rd. Those look pretty narrow-- hate to step on that edge and twist an ankle.

    Yes we do extra work for free. In june there was 5 weeks and we cut 5 times but we charged for 4 cuts. But the work we do for free is still top knotch, quality work.

    winter of 05', a supervisor of one of our commercial properties called us at 10:00 at night. the pipes froze on one of his office trailers. we came and fixed it and got it ready for the next day. Did it for FREE!

    Doing that brought us alot more work from that company that we charged for.

    I can go all day long!

    Last summer went to a CEO of a pharmecutical plant to level off his yard for a pool.

    Did that for nothing and it brought us alot more work that we charged for.

    We stand by our clients and go above and beyond thier expectations

    If I did that base ball feild I would only charge them for materials. I would not charge for labor, fuel, etc...

    All i would ask for is to have a part of a page on all of their sports magezines, (what ever they call them) and it would say "this feild was brought to you by ________________ (company name)..... or something like that.

    With doing that it would put our name out their to everyone that played on that feild, and their parents.
