I don't know anyone that does that kind of work in my area. I am not a professional landscaper - I tell my customer's that right up front. I have 25 years of gardening experience, been involved in a local garden club, started out by grooming friends and families gardens. I am a one woman operation and report my taxes as a sole proprietorship. I don't make that much to even put a dent in anybody's livelihood. My customer's sign a liability waiver/contract. So what else do I need to have to be "professional"? A 48" stand up or what?
Water under the bridge, remember emails and forums have no tone, it's difficult and hard to read at times. Plus you will find, their will always be someone to rattle a few cages. I understand what Hoolie is trying to convey, and it is valid. I just don't think he read the thread all the way through.

Well put.
