The first pic with the steps..
The block that is used for the side of your steps...
Is it me or all the block stacked so there is no offset on the joints?.

Good eye. I didn't see that at first. But I'm sure the homeowner did not want staggered bond lines.

I'm sure if you educate the home owner on why you should not have the bond line lining up on wall block. That would have not happen
I would say that would be a cost to home owner 3k to 5k. So you would think they would last them as long as there in the house if not longer. You also wonder did he waterproof the concrete behind the steps and when the door rots out
who will take the hit. The hard scape industry's.
He said its not his comply why should he care!!!
Well my freind you are fired and probably have no passion in what you do..
I very surprised that (sry DVS) did not tare you a new as$ to the O.P.

My company is Cold Spring Landscapes & Construction.
It's funny that everyone is so quick to judge other peoples work, and say what if this, what if that. And down grade someone's work. These jobs in the thread early on are work of a diff company that I worked for. Most of everything was done by my self and self taught. The company I worked for did not take the time to teach because they were to "busy". I have since then learned alot from my own mistakes. If I could go back knowing what I know today compaired to knowing what I knew then. Wouldn't we all be better off as a whole? It's a good thing I can take constructive criticism very well!!!

Then if you posted these pics years ago, saying you were an employee then - and you since gone out on your own - then you had a company name way back when?

As far as picking at people's work - it should be expected when you post pics on an industry forum, this is not Facebook where all your family will say encouraging things.

When you post pics on an industry forum - you are then an American Idol contestant and should expect the truth
