    Here's a few pics of a residential install we did a couple weeks back...

    Excuse the after shots; my foreman took them when he went back to check the irrigation settings and he's a much better landscaper than he is a cameraman.. haha.

    These are BEFORE.

    AFTER (Back Yard) [Like I said, he's no camerman]..

    Also, the Wax Myrtles are so close to the fence bc the homeowner had some jackleg run the irrigation before the plan for the landscape was complete..

    The trees were either gonna go close to the fence or about 3 feet from the fence, which would have screwed up their purpose (to screen along the fence)..

    Her wishes, not mine...

    We're about to roll into a couple straight weeks of large residential installs...

    I'm still trying to push for more commercial maintenance; I just need to find the time to go his the pavement hustling to some of these business owners.

    I personally hate cold-calling, but I don't really see any other way around it other than through word of mouth.

    I'm trying to get to a point where I can have a devoted maintenance crew 5-6 days/week.

    I have some guys that are really good at what they do; they've been with me for awhile now, and they are ready to roll on their own.

    They already do the maintenance w/out me for the most part; it's just be nice to have two crews going at once week in and week out...

    I'll get there, though. :drinkup:
