    even if they cant it will look better when everything grows and gets a little color.

    Thats some good looking work you performed, But I'm just wondering why they let it get in such bad condition in the first place ?

    thanks i appreciate it. not sure why they allowed it. i know they had a contract with the last company for 3 years. they finally got mad last year, and bid it out when the contract was up. i was told that some of there places the company wouldn't show up for a month at a time to mow.
    i am gonna try to get all these places in shape by april by myself, but not sure if i will be able to in time. if next week doesn't go by faster i guess i will go ahead and get some help to get caught up before mowing season starts.
    hate to spend the extra cash since no money really made off of snow this winter. thanks again for compliments!! i will put up the next round of pics next week.

    That sidewalk is certinaly rough! And that is one huge load you got off of there!

    Speaking of finding sidewalks... I found one today! It was about 4 inched underground and partly UNDER another sidewalk!!! I was doing a sprinkler replacing job and wanted to move a couple closer to the sidewalk. When I dug back I hit condrete about 4 inches down. From the looks of it someone poured a new sidewalk (about 20 years ago) basically on top of the old one! It protruded out about 10 inches from under the top one. I found out fast just why the sprinklers weren't next to the walk though!
