Matt can be hardcore, but he does quality work.

Overall its more of a "look at what I can do kinda project" and kudos to you Matt for selling them that. You must be a good salesman because in all honesty unless they have20 people living in that house or they entertain a huge amount of people, then I think its just monstorous to have in ones back yard. But again, hopefully you made some good money on this and you can upgrade to a ford instead of that ole dodge.

Zedo, I think Jimmy Buffett and his band are going to do a show there!





In Northern VA, there is a HUGE, outdoor concert arena (can't think of what that place is called, they change their name all the time, TThomass and maybe PaperCutter knows what I'm talking about), all the BIG names play there. That's what came to mind when I 1st saw the pics!

I should take that back. Todd and a few other do quality work. Everyone has a different style and different design aspects for their regions etc. You think everyone should conform to what DVS landscapes does and it should be taken as gospel.

Not at all, by any means Because we primarily focus on the upper end of low level to mid-level jobs. Intentionally.

See, you're seeing my comments as the glass as 1/2 empty and the negative is preventing you from seeing the enhanced potential that great contractors have.

Zedo does great hardscape work. But it's disappointing to see such great work copped out with landscape gravel. Thats like wearing work boots with a formal pair of high dollar dress pants, dress shirt, jacket, and tie.

It's like a great athlete that is slacking in areas that he/she has the potential to excel even further in.

I'll speculate that this summer we're going to see pictures from Zedo with less gravel and more perennials. A softer touch full of natural color He'll find perennials that like dry soil for his clients that don't like to water. And I bet the title to his thread of new pics has my name in it!!!!!!
