Well I wasn't sure if people would be interested in my thread because I don't see too many people posting pictures of their own projects, but it looks like people are. I will share some information about myself. I work for my family's Landscaping business and I hope to take it over someday when the old man wants to retire. I graduated last year from college with associates degrees in construction management and business management. I have worked for the family company for 13 years. Currently I am a job foreman and the head equipment operator for the company. I do all the prep work for all the jobs, meaning for pavers, I do everything up to putting in the beading sand and for walls, everything up to laying base row. Also I do almost all of the granite work. Then my father and his crew comes in and completes the project and I move on to prep the next job. However on our large projects we work together to get the job done quicker. I am also ICPI, NCMA and PICP certified and have a CDL license. Don't be afraid to to ask questions or comment on our projects. I will try to answer them the best I can but I don't know everything! haha

Overall the jobs look ok, but I think there is room for improvement on the detail (as in finishing touches) aspect and in the design department. Have you guys considered hiring someone to design your hardscapes for you?

We only use a designer when the customer requests it.

A permeable patio and walk we did on a lake. The client had been waiting for a year to get a regular patio approved. We re-did the design with permeable and it got approved in one week. Permeable is definitely the way of the future.

Tom, don't take this personal, you really need to pay more attention to detail, like bond lines and I'm not seeing any edge restraint anywhere, what about geo-tex, haven't seen you guys using that either. You guys seem to do alot of work and you're proud of it which is a good thing but stand back and have a look at your work from the curb, things need to flowwwwwwwwwwww.
