It's just like other stuff, if you don't "use it" you "lose it". Not sure why they needed 3 buckets though

Found these two neighbours on google street view while looking up a driveway quote for someone who called in. They must have had the same contractor.

SOOOOOOOOOOO........ This is the funniest thread i've found on this website, but as a newer landscaper having never done a hardscape, I am now terrified of trying lol.

Do most people work for other landscapers and learn from mistake on other people's dimes or wait till they get their own house to make their own mistakes and learn ??? I have minor thoughts on like 18" high little garden bed ideas that I thought might help me learn more but i cant believe just how bad some of these projects are.

Don't learn on a customers dime, if you can't learn from working for another business, read books, blogs, ect. Also, you can take continueing education courses on masonry. It's not rocket science, but you need to be meticulous, detail oriented, and refuse short cuts. These guys are all lazy, sloppy, or mentally ******ed.

I strongly recommend an adult education course if you have zero experience. I had minor experience, and supplemented my existing knowledge with research and asking my cousin, an expert, for advice. This website is a wealth of knowledge.
