That looks great. :D Can I hire Matt? If not, give Matt a raise. He deserves one. What did that project cost?

Sorry guys, didn't mean to be misleading, just wasn't sure how to word it. This project was completed over a course of a few weekends, with the understanding already known to the customer that this is how it would be done. I do like to crack the whip, but I can't make him work that fast. :p

Hey not bad for a weekend warrior! Good work Matt ...only constructive criticism would be in post 17(hope you don't mind) ...I'm not sure I like the way the caps look on the end or how the wall ends by the post... not sure how I would have done it different, but ,could you have put a longer piece of coping?...almost looks like your lines ..line up. As far as how to finish it by the post...I'm not sure..I'd have to think about that.

Btw ...do you own that cool bed edger? ..always wanted to try one of those!

edit... ok after a closer look could you have curved it a bit different and came inside those posts with your wall?

I started cutting caps from left to right and that's a rounded radius leaving two cuts per cap to make a smooth seamless contour to fit the wall. If I would have put one more full cap, I would have been left with a little piece, so I split the difference. I don't know how I could have done it differently without having to start at the beginning and recut caps.

My wall had to start where it was, there is a pond behind there for sound purposes with a little waterfall. I had to reconfigure the pond slightly as it was.

Ya it's hard for me to tell the radius in the pics ... I think you did a helluva nice job.

nice work
bed edging machines are awesome... but the one major drawback is that once you use one you want to buy one..........

What kind of dumb screen name is that, Scout? I wouldn't name my dog that. :p
Ok, ok, you showed up to move a few block around and eat some pizza and drink all my teas.
btw, here is the ugly mongrel........

p.s. Matt didn't see this yet, we watched "meet the fockers", and now he is sleeping... I'l show him tomorrow.

Looks great. Hey Jodi I went to the website you posted for the edger and I could not find a price. Is it there and did I miss it? From the pictures it looks like it pretty well pulverized the dirt. How did Matt Like the final out come and did he have to haul away any edging debris.

Thanks,

JP

jodi, awesome job.....

kris, my HD just got the same edger. they were not even aware that it is used for the landscape beds. i knew that when i looked at the blade. they did not have a price then, it was that new.

i just called them and it's $60 for 24 hrs...and $42 for 4 hrs.
