I'm assuming you do, but do your guys complete all the wood work and roofing and such? I remember you saying you don't use many or any subcontractors that much.

I just finished the thread. All I can say is WOW!! what a company you have built.

Your business principles are for anyone, not just those in landscaping.

The greatest point I got out of this whole thread was your mission statement where it says you attempt to "Honor God" in all that you do. By making that statement you have built a shield over your business that it will prosper and I hope others that have read this thread will realize that.

Chik-Fil-A comes to mind when I think of a business that honors God and we know how successful they have become.

I know you try to keep within an hours drive to your worksites but have you ever ventured down to Maryland's Eastern shore for any jobs? Your work would fit in perfectly with all the million dollar waterfront homes/estates we have in the area.

Thanks for being so open with your business so that others may have success.

May God continue to bless your business

We are well underway with this neat project. Walls footers are dug and poured, pool pumped down, and of course the mud is here in full.

The new aluminum boxes look awesome Jarod.

Why did you pour cement for the wall footers rather than traditional stone compaction? I assume the engineer called for it, but I'm just curious.

They are masonry wall footers which require poured concrete.
