• LawnSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again LawnSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of LawnSite will experience a major upgrade later this week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue..

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit LawnSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow LawnSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, LawnSite Team

Learning moment. It seems as though ya'll are anti-pre-emergent such as snapshot. What prevention do you use to prevent weeds from growing in the mulch itself?
If you look in the thread I previously posted we do snapshot, weed barrier, mulch and then snapshots again. On our higher end residential contracts we also spray glyphosate monthly, pull weeds and apply snapshot twice a year at least.

Now the real question. How do you remove leaves from the base of bushes without cursing the entire time doing so?

Still haven't figured that one out. If they're not in the front of the home or visible, I don't worry too much about it if they don't move after about three seconds of continuous blowing.

Don't include weeding in your mowing unless you are charging for it. Also, get your applicators license. Weeding should only be done in areas where you can't spray. Weeding is slow, tedious, and expensive.
