    Here is a small lawn that was a little over grown. Told the lady 30 bucks to cut it, line trim and blow off hard surfaces. I just got a stick edger and NOONE around here edges so i did the walk in front of her house and up to her house. I got done and asked if she liked the job and that i was done. It ttok me about 45 min to do the whole job. Here are a few pics. Edging makes such a big difference. :)

    when finished she gave me a $100 dollar bill and told me to keep it. She loved the job.

    People don't always realize how good its going to look until you actually do it.
    Looks much better by the way.

    Amazing, isn't it. Such a difference with one simple (well, sometimes) operation. It's like the "finishing touch". I guess you can compare to Armorall on the tires of a detailed auto. It just makes a big difference on the finish.

    Looks great. What the heck is that white pimple growing out of the center of the lawn?

    Great job there!!

    Nothing like a satisfied customer to make you feel good about your job.

    Now, I am sure you are going to report that tip to the IRS?? :rolleyes:
