Default Making Progress

This is the large wood chipping, wood hauling, excavation job a crew started on two weeks ago, progress is bang on, I do most of the excavation while one of the helpers uses the 2520 for just about everything and getting really good with it, the first two shots are around the time we started the last four as of yesterday, coming along well about 2 of the 13 to 14 acres are done, we will add mulch after the grading is finished along with walking path's as they want the park look.

That is just amazing! I can't even imagine how much work that would be to clear that land! It looks incredible. I am sure the customers are ecstatic with the results.

They along with visitors who saw it two and a half weeks ago before we started are shocked, we are being asked a few times a week if we would look at their projects but we can't at the moment as we have a serious backlog of work.

This area will look very different today as the wood chips are being put down, I don't care for how they want for the finished look as I don't think it will look right, I have gone to great lengths to explain this however they sign the cheque and if it's what they want, it's what we shall do.

Here is where we were at today, I know the sky is cloudy, less than an hour from this picture the skies opened up and we had to stop, we still have to do the edging but man it is looking good.

Just Natural but we want a clean cut line, I have a John Deere EC35, it's a walk behind edger that does amazing work, you can also angle the head to cut at whateven angle you wish.

What do you mean by this? How won't it look right?

It's such a large area that we are doing putting chips down in the entire area seems to look off to me considering the other landscaping we have done, I would have incorporated walking path's, maybe a few shrubs, grass area etc. This area in the picture has around three tandum loads of wood chips that we made so far.
