Grass cut pictures

Hello,

I guess I just have a general question about grass cuts. In my state it's hard to find dedicated workers. So when grass cuts start back up I will be doing it on my own. How would you seasoned guys suggest I get during pictures of the mowing and weeding if it's just me? Thanks.

We photo the mower with the trimmer and the blower in the yard after all work is done. 4 befores, 4 afters, one equipment pic and possibly one of the trailer if we are hauling landscape waste. A solo guy with one hand on a weedeater and one on the camera is an accident in progress. Probably won't work for many of the regionals but that is our sop.

Thanks for your reply. Okay that's good information. I hate doing it on my own but dang no one wants to work these days especially in my state. So I will just roll solo for a while.

We take pics of a mower in the yard (As Part of our Before Pics), and a leaf blower pointed at the sidewalk (One Handed). They get 4 before pictures and 4 after pictures as well. For obvious safety reasons, make sure that the mower isn't running.

We stop the mower mid yard and take a picture. These are good because they show the house, mower, uncut and cut sides.

I highly recommend this option!

It's also great for population control, as many a stupid person dies from using it in inappropriate places or conditions.
