Got to with all the high prices these days.

FYI. All of our streets here are concrete, not asphalt. I'm sure it's different everywhere you go though.

The street in front of my clients home is ground zero. The point from which the world views your work. Make of it what you will. Even birds don't **** in the nest. We dump NOTHING in the street, EVER. No, not because it hurts the street. Because it hurts your image. It's sort of why there are no trash trucks running through Disneyland. It ruins the illusion.

where curb appeal starts is a matter of opinion.

that's why I said my responsibility as an LCO to a client STOPS at the gutter. I don't think the street has anything to do with curb appeal. and if a client is gonna try and get me to deal with the street then they will be fired on the spot.

if people don't agree with this perception then I'll gladly close up shop. my services start at the gutter. that's where ground zero is for me and my business.
