    I do maintenance and re-plants on this house (didn't do the original install)... great customer, he does the lawn and a lot of the trimming by himself! Every Fall, I cutback spirea/grasses and tidy up AND do half the mulching, just out front. No pics of the backyard... :(

    BIG tree move today... with the obvious help of a great landscape nursery. This is a 9" Lacebark Elm for a customer of mine. Nice doing something different that really makes an impact. I worked with this company many times before but this was the first big tree they've done for me. Went really well.

    It went where a large maple was previously....before the utility company cut it down. That's why we did some complete stump grinding (it had been ground before, but not enough for the tree spade truck.)

    Tying the tree up and tarping for transport.

    Here's a picture of the tree just a few weeks ago... with leaves on it, so you can get an idea of what it looks like. It is beautiful. Can't wait to see it next summer.

    Some leaf pics, it's very dry here- you can work up a huge pile in 10 minutes.

    ...and where I dump at the property I lease...
