Apex Lawn & Landscape is on a distinguished road
Default Recent Job We Finished.

A Lady called me up explaining that she had found me on Angies list?! ( Wow Im on Angies..didnt even know ) and wanted to get rid of her existing triangle mulch bed. I gave her some Ideas and this is what Apex came up with. The ideas can be endless but she had a "Price range" .




Before.
















All went well with this job & I made some pretty good money, so I headed back to my hometown to celebrate with the boys....lets just say I dont remember much...






On a side note:
FINALLY got my 2500 back to work. New Motor, Windshield, Rocker panels, starter, brake lines and a bottle of tire shine. For all you Chevy guys with the infamous rocker panel rust...www.raybuck.com . ! Slip on rocker panels ( Steel ) at an awesome price. No welding, just a little cutting of the old and a couple screws under the door jam.








Also picked up a new stand on wheel for my walk behind, the single wheel Velke . Makes things a little faster but man do I hate the way my lines look with the wheel mark.





My SZ Tank is still striping well though!!





Hope Everyone Is Having A Great Season..No Complaints Here....Other Than The Fuc*ing Weather Man Never Getting The Forecast Right!!!!!

Thank you Cheese. You van find the "realistic horse mask" on Amazon.com. . This job took roughly 23 hrs . SECT, we just put a really deep edge around the new bed, a lot deeper than normal because of the pitch off the rocks. And to keep that mulch in place I put 25 or so weed pins on each side, sticking out about 2" or so. It turned out nice. The Job didn't include the number rock but we threw it up anyway..the little things like that please your customers greatly! I shouldnt say little, my father in law is a site developer around here..was doing a house two roads over so I got the hook up on those nice rocks..$100 for 40-50 of those rocks!! Used the rest at my house. In the original before picture you can see at the top an Alaskan Cedar tree...we transplanted it off the corner of the house and it's actually doing well, I never have good luck with transplants so we will see, its still early though.

Catch it now hedge! Mine were so bad that one day I stuck my boot in them..repeatedly..forcing myself to spend the money to fix it. Major flaw with the chevys. With these new ones I'm gonna shoot foam inside to prevent any salt/ dirt from laying inside. Love my Chevys but if I could switch some things they'd be the rockers the hub sensors oil pressure sending units and window controls
