    I have a couple yards that have not recovered and are pretty much done for the year. These yards are in a new development where the yards all turned to toast, except for the watered ones. I will be oveseeding next month, but the season will be wrapping up by the time the grass has come back.

    Thanks man. I'm really happy with how it turned out.

    I designed it myself and wasn't sure if it would look as good "in person" as it did "on paper".
    It's completely different from my initial concept. I decided to simplify it to allow for better visibility when backing up. I can't see my trailer at all in my side mirrors until it's turned (and by then it's usually turned too far), so I came up with the design you see here.

    It was more of a challenge than I expected, as a result of all the little "obstacles" on the glass that needed to be worked around. Every time I turned around I found my design went right where one of those dang "buttons" were. Grrrr...

    I was going to use my logo initially, but it would have blocked too much of my view, so I used elements of it - the font used for "Oak Leaf" as well as the leaf graphics. I'll probably be using my actual logo on the side lettering.

    The color is Avery Champagne Mist Metallic. It looks different depending on the angle you view it. One minute it looks like a near perfect match of the truck color and from another angle it looks silver.

    It cost $65 + $10 shipping.


    Oh, and he asked if I had any other "small words" I'd like to have cut from the scrap vinyl, so I sent a file with several things on it and he included 3 logos with the order.
    I placed one on my mower. :)

    Yeah QuickSigns is pretty good, $350 to get my dump all decked out. Well worth the money!

    Hey guys! New member here from The Burgh. My name is Nate and myself, my dad, and my brother run Stockman Lawnscape based out of Plum. We do a lot of work around Oakmont, Penn Hills, Plum, Murraysville, Monroeville, etc. Glad to see other guys from around here that seem nice. Most guys we run into are always pretty rude. Anyways, glad to be apart of the forum! We are hiring right now too if anyone knows of reliable guys!

    Hey McG! I'll keep an eye out for ya! Anyone else get caught in the rain today? I was running a ZTR in Oakmont at one of our bigger clients house when the skies opened up. I was halfway done and the radar was all green. Had to keep going! I don't think the guys were too happy with me haha
