Did a renovation at a house the last few days. We ripped out the bushes from all around the house (all 4 sides). We then demoed out the concrete steps, and I had a friend of mine pour the new concrete patio in the back and sidewalks. Looks 10 x better without the bushes. I only have pics of the front and left side. I was in a hurry today! There were over 30 bushes total around the house.

Yeah it was a good project, between ripping out the bushes and demoing the concrete to putting in the stone!

The renovation of the removal of bushes looks real good. I don't like that small tree though in the middle of the lawn. Maybe you can convince the customer to put something larger or maybe a flowering tree. Just seems to not fit there. Just a suggestion

I agree about the plants however that was not part of my bid. She placed the plants were she wanted them in addition to buying those plants .. I did everything else. I agree with you though 100 percent

Did a demo job on sunday and monday. The after pics are a bit dark but we were working after the sun went down. The job included knocking down the porch, and leaving the remains there. There was a giant hole under the existing porch, that needed filled. Also knocking down a concrete wall that was pushing. Straighening up the a/c pad and rebuilding a rail road tie wall. The wall needs the last tie pounded into place however other than that the job is complete. The home owner is building a wooden deck off the porch and is not concerned with the debris that is left.
