    Yo, yo, yo

    Listen right, I like to take my time, I cruise up to a job, slowly get me hose out, walk round to the furthest point of a job, then walk back for me pole. I make sure that not stone is left turned(so to speak) all flowers are left intact, ect ect.

    But because of that I usually get home at about 5 and earn about £100 a day,

    Conversely when I work with my buddy, he doesn't worry to much about going through flowers, or leaving his hose a foot in the air across a path. but he earns double me in a day and is finished by 2-3.

    What do ya think guys, what's your style?

    Mornings only, rain or shine. Then out on the bike for the rest of the day.
    Best job in the world....

    I guess it all depends on what your happy earning.

    For me at the mo in my office job I get roughly £1300 take home a month after tax so £100 a day would be nice for me. Hence why I am dying to get back to it.

    What I've noticed is when I feel as if I'm taking it easy I actually take the same time or mostly quicker than if I go in gung ho, for me gung ho is a waist of energy because it doesn't achieve anything.
