Default Shed Job

Yesterday was a hot day!

I had to do:
1 Lawn Maintenance Job
1 Hedge Trimming Job
1 Shed Job


I started off with the lawn job, didn't have to do it... The guys lawn, his neighbors all up the street have a problem, I go back next week to see if it's grubs.

Score... So now to make up for what he owes monthly, I'm not cutting his grass, instead I'll trim his hedges. Now 2 hedge trimming jobs to do.

I go to my next job, do a bit of hedges, get annoyed with the hedge trimmer, try using the whippersnipper, the hedge looks beautiful...

Next job, a shed is covered in vines & the roof hasn't been cleared in years, the gutters are overflowing with debris....

here are some pics!

Photobucket

MAN was it hot up there!

When I finished. I went to pick up my mower from the dealer, it was fixed... They charged me less than $400.00, so I was happy.

then I bought a water gun & shot myself in the head!

It didn't take too long, I bought a knife the day before because I thought it'd come in handy, the next day it did! Nothing but vines and what not.

Just sliced & diced like in the movies, & tossed it down, rake/bag & I was out of there.

The gutters were disgusting, jam packed for years. I pulled debris out like bricks, so compacted, so nasty. It looked like I was tossing dead kittens from the roof. Vines were also all along the siding of the shed, pulled it off... quick job, easy.

Something I should think about with more customers, no one thinks about shed maintenance!
