Location, location, location. It's not cheap here to begin with but this type of house near the beach is very popular as a summer home. The summer population triples here.

Laid off workers with severance buy big buck equipment and are instant "LANDSCAPERS".

I've been doing this since the early 80's and can probably count on both hands projects I've done that could be considered "Landscaping". Being fair though, I don't mulch much more than my home. I concentrate on mowing and lawn treatments.

The hardscaping aspect does intrigue me. For about 3 years I was drafting up proposals for a good friend that was into hardscaping. Worked a few weeks for him during a long summer drought about 10 years ago as well. Landscaping is one thing....hardscaping is totally different. Still the equipment required to do either at a respectable level is a detriment to most.

Where I live you can rent a bobcat with the attachments for like $400 a week...So, it's more like fear of the unknown...I guess. Don't stare into the lazer level...cause when you cut grass your lines will be crooked....LOL
