What do those blocks run where your mulch/rock bins are. How would I go about getting some?

If I'm correct these blocks are available at most any concrete supplier , they make them out of leftover mix when the trucks come back. 30-50 buck a piece if I think .

Looks great. Does digging close to those trees mess with the root system?

I understand we all got to start somewhere. I started when I was 16 and grew my business in a professional manner to where we are today. I am only 23 but honestly I still am small, but professionalism is everything. This is not about looking good but providing a quality product. I just see the lack of professionalism in my area. I just love to gain knowledge and also use this to my benefit. yes this is my little talk but in a nutshell lawnsite has been such a great Tool learn from your competition and grow.
Here are some pictures of a hardscape project. This project is about 3800 sq ft retaining wall. One thing I have learned from Jarod is renting is not bad. We rent more than ever. The ASV is mine. I will try to get some pics of trucks, equipment, and shop. I will also get some more projects that I have done during college.
Thank you to the professional guys on this website that have helped me get to where I am today. There are many.
Not reall sure about Hickory, but 30 miles down the road it's landscapers heaven.(ASHEVILLE)

Mimowerman is correct about it being left over concrete. I paid like $35 for the large concrete block and I think the half concrete were like $30. Sorry for not getting back sooner it is just that time of yr.
Asheville is about an hour from Hickory. I think it was in the pro book the big city scape going on in downtown asheville. Hickory they consider the black hole an hour from charlotte and an hour from asheville.
