    We just set a new record in shrub triming for us today! Our 5 man crew did 13 buildings of the appartment complexes we maintain.Best we ever did before was 10 buildings. I got 4 more buildings to finish tommorow, plus the perimeter of the property which is about a mile around. Its alot better doing this in the spring. It took us 3 years to change the owners mind. They always wanted it done in june and july!

    What happens after the spring growth? Won't you have to trim them all again.

    Once a year only. If some get out of control the managers are supposed to spruce them up. But that aint never happened yet.

    Yes they are big. We do 6 complexes this size and 3 smaller ones about 1/3 to 1/2 as big. It takes 150 to 200 man hours to do the pruning at each one. And 15 to 18 man hours to mow each one.
