    Alright, here's my equip / work pics from today. Remember people, I'm just starting out. These are my only two accts so far, and they happen to be only a couple of doors down from one another. The first one was TERRIBLE when I started two weeks ago. All the edges were about 1 1/2 feet tall of weeds.. the beds were full of weeds.. The rock/retaining wall was full of weeds... so its a work in progress. My edges will look better and better as the grass gets fuller.

    The second (larger) one is a little dry. I started this one today. Before I did it, you couldn't even see the top of the bricks (border) really, because the edges were so horrible.. anyway, please be nice :)

    Thanks. I just commented yesterday on how you did a good job reaching your goal of 15 accts so quickly. After I finished the job, the wife said she has two elderly brothers who have back problems and cannot do their own yard work.. so I may pick those up as well.

    So I bought a new tool today... I know its not commercial by any means, but I am on a very tight budget, and like stated previously, only have 2 accts as of right now, so this will suffice. I bought a Poulan 25cc straight shaft trimmer with an edger attachment. Really, I needed an edger. I have a commercial Kawasaki as my primary trimmer, so this Poulan will primarily serve as my edger, but also as a back up trimmer. Again, I was on a tight budget, and got both the trimmer and the attachment for about $185...
