    Hi,

    Just completed my first job. Redoing some garden beds, Tilling in some triple mix while breaking up the hard packed garden and then topping it off with cedar mulch. It took 3 guys 4-5 hours. Im pretty happy with the result. This was my first non maintenace job but the other 2 guys have several years experience. Enjoy!

    Hey,

    We reedge the side bed after that pic because it looked like hell. I had a stick edger but it screwed up after cutting the sod so we where stuck with the hand edger. Even though it isnt optimum they look alright. What are the prefer edgers to use? I guess walk behinds?

    Cheers
    Jeff

    You mean jam a flat spade in and kick it forward to create a slanted V type grove?

    Cheers

    Ah well live and learn lol. I also learned to order MORE mulch then expected. I calculated it a little close.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Cheers
