Kara A.'s lawn in Sarasota, FL

THANKS! We had some old braches/shrubs piled up to take to the curb (stuff that died in the last freeze). We woke up this morning to take them out, and they were gone!! Thanks to your crew for cleaning that up ... it was above and beyond what we expected!

Very nice job of mowing and trimming. However, I did notice a cut cable jutting out from the ground near one of the new sprinkler heads that I pointed out to Martin & his assistant. I've checked all our connected systems, and they all seem to work fine. So possibly this a piece of cable from an earlier connection. No other problems, and, as I said, a nice job of mowing.
