    That's a good problem to have.

    Here's a close pic of the beds we cleaned out. Same kind of mess in the back too.

    Yes. I was hoping for a better before and after pic. I wish I would have taken a close up of the beds before we cleaned them out. The guys beds were basically un-mowed bermuda lawns with large sow thistle weeds all over the place. Lot's of briar patch vine too. A couple of sucker trees in the back along the fence line were over 10' tall.

    These before and after pics just don't do it justice. But I am SO swamped from the yellow pages. I haven't had time to get around and scalp all of my existing customer's lawns yet.

    This cleanup took a two man crew (myself included) about 4.25 hours. 49 cubic feet of mulch.

    Later,
