    Looks nice. Are the new steps made from breaking the old round steps?

    I'll be doing my first mulch job in a couple weeks and can I just ask you how you mulch? I know it sounds stupid but do you go down to the soil, or do you just spread it over? Do you till all the ground up?

    BTW, your jobs look great. And nice truck if that is yours.

    I pull any weeds or grass out all the way to the roots cause pulling the tops won't kill them then i use a shovel and cut out a new edge around the planting beds then just spread new mulch in the beds

    You might want to put down some weed guard or something to keep any weeds you missed from coming back. It will look good for a long time.
