    You did a great job trimming, did you do it all with gas trimmers. It looks like it would be tough to keep the clippings out of the pool.

    We usually use a tarp held by 2 other workers and what ever falls in the pool we have a system of having one guy blowing the top of the water with a backpack blower and it gets a current going towards one end of the pool. Everything usually floats and when the current gets it to the one end of the pool another guy uses a skimmer and skoops it out. All done with redmax gas trimmers.

    The before and after pics are great. I enjoy doing those kind of jobs, where you can make a dramatic improvment on existing shrubs and trees.

    I hope you got paid good for that pool work. That job would of sucked.
