OK, I'll admit it and say I'm an idiot!

Totally missed the 20 ton of rock installed..........

I now give everyone on LS a free pass to give me crap. (just please refer back to this thread when doing so)..................

7 wheelbarrows.

We trimmed... Ripped all types of stuff out, hand dug edge, weeded, applied fabric and hauled stone with wheelbarrows. Could I have used less labor.... Sure but I wanted to make 100% sure it got done in 1 day. Believe me it was a lot of work.

I was going to say! We removed a lot of stuff, roots and all. The stone went quick with the labor, but it all took time. It was a lot of work. However, the client is very happy.

I feel it is very unprofessional to say. Pictures of work , man hrs and materials are where I draw the line.

I love jobs like these. Dramatic before and afters typically generate good word of mouth IME.
