    Great looking work Dstosh.

    Nice, clean, simple.

    I like how you've raised the beds in some of the pics. Do you have any problems with erosion back onto the sidewalk when you raise it, or does the good hardwood mulch keep the dirt in place?

    Yeah I couldn't think of the name of the place, I knew it was next door though. Used to be a shoe store if I remember correctly

    On the last install that is in the pics (just finished on friday) I did put some black pvc edging to avoid that. I have switched to a finer mulch that tightens up over time and should avoid washouts.

    Yep, the dentist said it used to be a shoe store.

    How long is that trailer? 20'? How many accounts roughly do you maintain?

    sounds like a good deal.

    What's your average account size if you don't mind asking? I like your set-up, shop and all. Seems like you have a real nice business.

    Thanks for the compliment. It seems that they are hard to come by on this site.

    Those first few pictures are some of our bigger accounts. I would say they are a little larger than an acre. Most of the time they need to be double cut too. I would say 1/3-1 Acre Plus, 1/3- Little less than an acre and 1/3 postage stamps

    Nice work. Seems like I have seen you around town. That first lawn pic I use to mow around 8 or 9 years ago. Small world.
