    Thanks man, I like the second place a lot... no grass so no edging and I don't have to be there weekly.

    The one mulch job I am doing now is a normal mowing customer and the wife likes to do yardwork but can not do a whole lot so she laid black plastic so there is no weeding and there is no edging. I love this type of mulching!

    Yeah man those cake jobs are fun, pull a few weeds here and there and throw the mulch around, easy! That job is in Shadyside, really enjoy that area of Pittsburgh!

    There's a little sidewalk staining from the dye, we started moving the mulch then it absolutely poured for an hour or so, made things very messy and miserable.

    The edge along the pavement isn't great, couldn't go deep as the blacktop is actually falling apart, I'm hoping that they get all of that replaced soon with concrete!

    And here's a picture of one of my favorite lawns... should have zoomed in a bit more though. On a very busy road (Route 8 in Gibsonia for those of you in Pittsburgh).
