Should say, things we do when work is slow.. been dry as hell in Adelaide for a while now.
Sure, I slash 7ft high blocks etc but as far as an actual 'lawn' goes, this one is up there..

Could they jump over the quote?
Would be at least $100 to get rid of the grass and at least 4 hours for the job wouldn’t it?

That or in my case an Echo Bearcat High Wheel Self Propelled Trimmer possibly use the Mulchmaster too but not 4 hours worth with anything  :)

I would believe that , this one was in centre of Nowra , disabled woman living in fibro duplex . No needles but the other contractors were claiming maintemance for lawn and not doing it .
Had a job at car yard in town and would regularly find needles in garden there .hasnt been as bad since ice around I think they smoke it rather than inject it.
Drove past one of the blocks of units on Friday , red three seat lounge with two arm chairs on nature strip , cushions and arm rests Black as filthy , and a free sign written on cardboard .had a big laugh about that .
