Just make sure you put fabric down so all your sand doesnt wash down the holes.

But yes, for now - it's there.

And who said I don't charge for my designs? I never said I don't charge for my designs. I absolutely charge for them. I'm a design-build firm after all - not a lawncare company. If it's just a front yard enhancement, I'll sketch it up and they approve - then they just sign my installation contract. But for the bigger ones - there's an individual contract for design and for installation. With deposits on each.
Why haven't you posted this 'clause'?

hang on, so you're saying that you're charging appropriate design-build firm design fees ($800-1000 and up) AND convincing the client that after they pay this, they don't own the design? I've heard of people doing this but I've always thought that took serious salesmanship. Would love to hear how you make it work.

If you know it isn't worth the paper it's written on, then why did you post about this clause? I'm confused.......
