landed my largest job EVER

just got done walking through a newly built house ($1.5 million+) and they want me to design and build the entire landscape. 200+ feet of boulder retaining walls 4 feet high, fountains, a court yard, over 400 plants, 8 trees, lighting, flagstone walkway, 500 sq feet of pavers, and a full irrigation system. the design process starts in a couple of days and construction starts within the month. Finally all my years of hard work are coming together. thank you god...!!! celebration beer anyone?

You think you and 4 guys can plant 400 plants, 8 trees, do a walkway, an irrigation system, a 500 square foot patio, and I would assume install a lawn plus fountains and whatever else in a week?

maybe, retaining wall should be 2 days, patio 1 day, plants/fountain 2 days, irrigation/lighting 1 day, and then final grading and sod install 1 day. that is if all goes well, which it never does lol
