Default Interesting day

Worked alone all day today on one job. Planted 60 Autum Azalias (2 90' runs), sprayed 13k lawn with Aerify and Nature's Magic. My cost for the Azalias was $40.00 each. I worked alone because the two helpers that were supposed to be there with me had an accident last night. One has a busted arm and the other got busted for DWI.

It really was a nice day. 72 with a light breese!

My material costs (bushes, garden soil, mulch and organic chemicals was about $3,000. My bid was $3,500. I love Doctors! Especially ones that have wedding age daughters.

The customer is having an outdoor wedding there on Saturday and wants me to come back on Friday to spray Insect Guard to eliminate uninvited guests (mosquitos).

Oh that sounds like a good job! Did you take any pictures of it?

Also, what did you use to dig all those holes for the plants?
