Hey guys l, do you guys use rangefinders for measuring in Landscaping.? I currently work in Landscaping and very often I have to measure existing lawns for renovations or brand new landscaping for estimating jobs. I have done this in the past but my new company includes some properties that are huge like Acreages and there are no drawings. I use the regular measuring tools plus others fancy ones (Moasure, Carta Plot, Drones). However, I like the lazer meters for their quickness... Range finders ..read more

It adjoins a neighbor's fence so it's another doubt that someone would use a fire close to another's lot like that... thanks for any thoughts ..read more

I've been doing a lot of DG spreading here in Arizona, but almost all of it has been 3/4"-1" @ 2" and that has been working well. I have a guy wanting 1/2" and I've heard that some are spreading this @ 1 1/2". Will 2" make it too "beachy" where it's kind of a pain to walk on ..read more

Very quick intro on me... Started business, no experience 1.5 years ago. no knowledge of anything, but people liked me and wanted me to do more. Have taken over 150 hours of design and maintenance courses and started moving more into design/build. Trying to at least have the feel of a professional designer. Starting to go all in on this direction, if it doesn't work out I'm moving on. Okay, so here's my question.. I'm on my 4th or 5th pretty decent size design, and my prices are are getting...

Sticking Hedge Shears ?

Have a nice cordless pair which, ever time I go to restart after sitting for more than weeks, the blades have locked stuck. Discovered through a service tech I trust that the honeysuckle especially leaves sugary sap that hardens on the metal. Even in the "Stihl Hedge Trimmer Blade Cleaner" (with lubricant) I have been applying and this has been the cause. Switched to brake cleaner, followed by spray graphite. No questions here.
