    So since everyone else has one I figured why not start.

    So this is my first official year in business, prior I was just doing misc jobs. I also still work for a Landscape Installation company in town doing design and office work, that often where you see the large installation job pictures coming from in other posts I make.

    Mics pictures I have taken so far.

    Small equipment.

    Thanks, cut a few laws with it last week. Runs great, but I realized after starting the first lawn (Mine) that it cuts about 1 inch lower then the rapid height gauge reads. I will need to fix that. Opps :confused:

    Anyway here's a mulch job from this weekend. Other company quoted her 20 Yards, I did 15 and could have gotten away with 13.

    Looks good if the other company was going to do 20 yards and you could have gotten away with 13 they must have been putting it on a foot deep.:laugh:

    Sod job, stripped the top 3" or so cultivated all the soil to approx 6" deep and mixed in new topsoil, and finally the green carpet.
