    I just saved that truck a lot of other work tho, when completing this purchase of the dump trailer, I will not be plowing snow with the truck. In fact i'm probably going to get out of plowing all together and double up on classes over the winter or get another job.

    Well, off to a dry start for the week. That is good, because the ground is soaked down here. I like cutting dry grass a lot better too. I am on my spring rotation, the yards I cut today will get cut on Friday again.

    Has anyone had any good luck finding good top soil. Found some nice stuff for $26 a yard, sound expensive?

    Ohio Mulch is cheaper on leaves and woody materials. DeMilta is cheaper on grass clippings. Nick at DeMilta gives me great prices on mulch. However, the dragon lady sister, treats me like we're married. Last year, I bought 150 yards of mulch from them. If you get them to deliver your mulch, you always get more than you order.

    What color truck? Red, blue or green? I'm in the red Chevy. My kid drives the blue Chevy. The green Dodge is a career employee. I don't think it was me, I think I was in Geauga county doing the water treatment plants. The pungent smell of mulch has nothing on these places.....:dizzy:

    I've had a few laughs today and a few what were they thinking moments! First of all, while mowing at a customers house that i picked up about 3 mowings ago, another landscape company had been working on his mulch (big company btw) and when the bed edged, they hit the asphalt and took a good chunk out of it. Not just in one plass but 2! and they just put mulch in it! I would of atleast went and purchased asphalt patch. Then my uncle was talking to me and said i should hire his neighbor to work for me as he just pulled out some shrubs with a chain and tractor and replanted them across the lawn!!! Wow some people really have not a clue at all.

    O well thats my story for the day.

    Dump trailer comes in tomorrow or thursday!

    well as crappy as it has been I think I got it figured out bagging only with the walker and using the new turf tiger I no longer fear spring grass. what a relief. landscaping is still slow.
