    We have a member that I trust his knowledge but this is all he'll tell me
    Heres part of c&p of what he sent me

    I want to know About his time saving, bottom
    line-adding method of trimming hedges and bushes that you have?
    I'm not sharing right now :p
    the method does not require special tools or equipment. I even have pictures but I don't want to share at this time. If word gets out it will cut into my bottom line to much.
    He won't share !! WTF - Members let your voice be heard.

    Bill come to Florida, I have lots of hedges that you can show me on. Wish I could figure out a way to spend less time on hedges other than subbing them out.

    Take those industrial fans you use for leaf clean-up, and mount them to a backhoe.

    Voila! Privet hedges and dense yews get fresh flat-top in seconds!

    the only real time saving tip i can offer is use snapper hi vac to pick up or mulch away the clippings. other than that -there is no short cut to trimming hedges and bushes. here in fla we do a lot of it! an articulated extended trimmer can save time by not needing a ladder sometimes. for very small shrubs-use a short bar hedge trimmer . usually only 20 in

    That's a nice website you got there!

    Sorry, this is off-topic. But one thing you might look into changing on your website is the size of the thumbnails in the pictures area of your website. They are so small that you can't tell at all what the picture is of until you click on it. A good thumbnail should be at least large enough to let the viewer know what they are looking at before they click on it. That's the whole point of thumbnails.

    Anyway, great website. Very nice!
