So far the majority all seem to ask for some kind of weed control weather it be weedwacking an area next to there house or spraying for weeds.

There were a few hard ones for example the bush would be naturally square and the customer would want it round and visa versa. He also wanted the bottom of all the bushes to be cut strait to the ground but unfortunately the last person hacked them so badly I could not do that for him. I told him we will have to wait and see if the lower part of the bushes recover then trim them accordingly. I was very happy though, After getting paid it was almost hard to leave. The wife wanted to feed me and my helper and said "Now we must keep you around" I take it they were very happy, especially sence the customer did not even blink when he read the bill and filled out the check.
Did you make the wire frames or purchase them?

Steve

Neither. These animals have been there for god knows how long. I assume they plant the shrub when its very small, then place the frame directly over it and just keep the shrub trimmed back to just above the frame to keep the shape.
