Working "solo" on "odds and ends" projects today.
Today, I had to do some "solo" work because the other guys were needed on other projects. I went to quite a few properties, that needed to have their bushes and ornamental tree's sprayed with Malathion, because they were being "munched", on by tent caterpillar's. I also was spraying the Illex, Hollies and Boxwood's for the small white flies that appear this time of year. I will have to return to these properties in a couple of weeks and repeat this process.
I also fertilized a few lawns due to the fact that these people had forgotten to ask for it to be done at the beginning of the year. Next week I will be applying the second application of fertilizer to all of our properties.
I am a divorced dad, with one son in college and one daughter, who is married and has my 3 wonderful grandchildren. I live in Grafton, Massachusetts. I have been Landscaping for the past 17 seasons with one company and have spent 3 seasons with 1 other landscape company, here in Massachusetts.
I do all phases of the landscape work at this company, from construction, installation, maintenance, trimming and have a Massachusetts Pesticide License.
