    what's between the service bed and cab on your truck? Looks like it is a shortbed box on a longbed frame. A boom or something?

    Your kinda correct theres a 2'4" space between bed and cab, I purchased it from original owner who had a large boiler repair/install company there was a large welder & generator in that spot, Beds nice to haul tools around tops open up as well, I plan to switch it out for another 9' dump bed so that I can keep the space between the cab and bed to build a stand up to box to carry shovels, chainsaws w/e need be, for now I strap a power washer in there when I finish up bigger jobs where I had to have mulch, rock or dirt in the street or if I make a mess with the skid I scoop up the big stuff with a shovel and power wash the lil stuff to the curb drain, (Bed is typically full of something at point of wraping up jobs reason why I put it between)

    Also theres some clover growing up along with some other b/s in the lawn, Customer is 100% happy with the install and how it looks, however is worried about the garbage growing in it already, Is it from watering alot to get sod established?

    is there anything thats safe to treat entire lawn with or spot treat as needed? Im not looking to spray anything myself would have to be OTC type control for the HO to pick up.
