    Here are some pictures of a shrubtrimming/mulching job that we did for a full service account. This is a high maintenance property for a solo guy!:hammerhead: I did have one helper for this job though.

    I've had some scary close calls with the ZTR around the creek and pond:dizzy:

    17 yards of mulch and hundreds of feet of edging later! I used my Mantis for all of the edging.

    Nice pics, may I ask how much do you charge per week at that place?

    Recently increased to $80 per week for the mowing. The property is a lot tougher than it looks. Not to mention it grows 12" a week thanks to irrigation. This does not include the stick cleanup, weed spraying, and maintenance type stuff. Those frickin weeping willow trees in the back lose sticks like crazy.

    I was figuring 100 for mowing and triming etc. So I may have ben a touch low. Id like about 30 of those kind of houses.

    No you really wouldn't:laugh: It takes me about 70 minutes to mow, trim (along pond sucks), edge, and blow off. I take care of two other neighbors so that takes away from unload time.



    Oh, and in case you were wondering, that is a Buhda standing in the mulch bed LOL.
