    Perennials, I would've personally pulled them out but she wanted to keep them. Sad since it would've looked a lot cleaner if I pulled everything and did some planting (large space below the yews I don't particularly enjoy). But hey, it's an improvement from what it looked like.

    And thanks Tim, appreciate it man!

    I line trim the grass before I edge, edge it and then line trim the new edge to make it crisp!

    Thanks Scott!

    Oh it's moving but barely... after this mulch job that I'm working on I really only have one "large" job left. After that it's just some small weeding jobs and a few odds and ends. Haven't actually booked any new work in almost 2 weeks now so August is looking pretty bad at this point.

    Looks like I'll be doing a lot of shop/truck work in the next month or so!

    I feel your pain! I have been taking a few days off at a time then doing one or two small jobs but its nothing compared to mulching every day like I was. I am ready for the grass to start growing again so I can be back at full capacity. I did just possibly pick up another dunkin donuts in our area so that's a plus but its still an every other week mow. I love doing this work but slow times do sure suck!
