That looks awsome!

I have a question for you. I put in about 300feet of alan block a few months ago, I dug the trench by hand, and put in the base (21AA and Slag), It was a real pain. Anyway, Did you did the trenchs for the block by hand or did you use some kind of super wide trencher?

Thanks.

I'm in NY, and was curious how much a house like that cost in your area, in my area that home would cost about $3 million.

we did wall work and plantings at this job. We didnt put the irrigation in and they are calling me trying to get me to fix it because the other contractor didn't blow the lines out, the pvc blew and he isnt answering his phone. Live and learn. :)

Since we didn't get the irrigation contract and he put in the system before we could get to the landscaping, this entire job was done by hand. Plants were hand dug, trenches for walls and trenches for the bed edgers were all done with trenching shovels. It was a lot of work but very rewarding in the end.

EDIT: To be honest I really don't know how much this house cost them. Although I don't know the price, this lot was the most expensive in the neighborhood of 398. Lots start in the mid 60's.

a lot like that in nj would easily be in the $750's... depending on the acreage it may be more.. for just the land.......

Nice work, looks likes a b!tch to cut the grass....

Nice work, Todd!

What kind of block is that? Were those walls engineered? Did you use grid?

All by hand?!? :cry: Looks like A LOT of genuine hard work.

That's one terraced property. How long did to job take to complete the job and how many workers were involved? Looks like it was alot of labor. Nice work. Sweet property.

Looks very nice. What part of the midwest?

I'm wondering how anything that today resembles an "irrigation system" could have gone in before all of that hardscape.
