    here are a few pictures from 2 mulch jobs we prepped on saturday and did yesterday. The edging looks funny because there were patches of dirt along the edge and roots so it look wavy or messed up but it really wasnt.

    That mulch looks great mister! Did you get to use that Toro pro yet? Hows the belt drive compared to the hydro?

    In that first little bed there are dirt patches around the edge, why not just edge out a foot where theres no grass? You mentioned roots, but just curious.

    Thanks! I actually havnt used it much yet. I changed fluids and filters and sharpened the blades last night and bolted up the sulky. I cut my grass with it yesterday and it was fun but I dont like how I can not back up with it like I can with the hydo. For what I paid for it though I will not complain!!
    Thats acually what I wanted to do! The homeowner is kind of picky but shes very nice. She didnt want me to even edge out the beds as far as I did. If I would have come out a foot she would have gone insane so I had to just resist the urge and keep them where they were!

    Ya I guess some people are like that huh? I probably wouldn't have asked her and just done it for the sake of making it look decent.

    That's really not a bad price man, just did a 12 yard job yesterday at just over $1100 with edging/mulch/shrub trimming. Right around $90 to $100 per yard installed is where I've been anyway.

    Better make him pay or threaten some collections/small claims court.

    Those North Hills houses all look alike and are unique because most of them are old Ryan homes I think. I've done a lot of work in Ingomar, landscaping and before that remodeling, and I've gotten down pretty good at telling those old Ryan Home plans.
