  • Getting Messy

    It seems every season, I always land ONE client who needs all of my attention right before I begin lawn maintenance.

    Last year it was when I rebuilt a guys patio.

    This year it's full yard maintenance.

    1. Dethatching
    2. Topsoil, fert, & seed
    3. Edging of tree bases & gardens
    4. Weeding of gardens & base of cedars
    5. Trimming of cedars & pruning of trees
    6. Planting of cedars
    7. to be continued...

    Anyway, I have been there for days now & would like to finish!

    Lawn maintenance begins tomorrow & let me tell you, I should have started 2-3 weeks ago man! This is going to be ONE tough start. Grass is up to my knees.

    There is only my customer who is a white man, the rest of the 17 homes are owned by Asians. They don't want lawn service. lol.

      This is what makes me want to go back in time. I always say, "I'm gonna take a before & after"

      what really happens...

      Get to the job site & pull out the tools & work... I hate when I forget!!!

      An after picture looks great, but to me - I need the before! Especially for advertising.


      I might be able to snap a b/a picture of the weeding job though, that's not finished 100% yet!

      Well today lawn maintenance began... I'm here drinking my coffee waiting for the storm to end...

      Already behind schedule, lol...

      I picked up hot dogs & burgers & a few beers last night & had a barbecue with all the people who have helped me out. Called it an early night knowing I'd need the rest!

      Weather Guys make me angry.

      What I was told:

      Saturday - Sunny
      Sunday - Rain
      Monday - Cloudy

      The truth:

      Saturday - Rain
      Sunday - Sunny
      Monday - Rain

      Rain all week apparently. hahahahahahahaha!!!!
