Michael looks good. To help on the blow back with dirt and mulch. Try hitting the wall with a 3-4 % mix first let it dwell for 10 minutes and use a 4040 tip ( depends on the size of your machine) and do a light rinse off. That will cut down on the splash up of mud.

I did a test this year because I had some Tyvek left over from my remodeling days and it worked well when cleaning close to dirt and mulch.

We have pieces in each truck about 20' long, lay it down against the wall and hold it in place with metal tent pegs. It works much better for this than it does for covering plants!

Good advice Brett. Tarps work pretty good for plant protection and so does water.

I cut up 1/4" plywood into 4 1ftx8ft boards, oil seal them and lay them down before.

works unbelievably well esp. under fences.

The boards dont flop or blow around.


(maybe that tidbit of info should be moved to the backroom Heh)

Not a bad idea.

I'll make a bunch of boards up, put the NSWA logos on them, sell em for $100 a piece and donate 10% to fund this board!

win win for everyone!
Just need to first setup a "Farcebook" page first.

(min order of 20 pieces per order)
