Nice stuff. I like the fences. Did you build that flagstone sidewalk ontop of an existing walk?

Mike, I remember when you got started; you have come a long way and congrats are in order. You can say, "I built this business" and know exactly how you did it--getting dirty and sweating getting new business every day.


I like the fence work. I recently had about 500 feet of redwood fence installed and have found one major flaw. When you share a fence line with a neighbor, you have to consider having both sides the same and "pretty." As a result , I have a lower, horizontal slot support to hold the boards. The net result is water does not drain well and rot gets going there first. Yours do not have that lower support and won't have the problem. However the back side will not look as good as the front side. I'll bet you've encountered this design issue.

Walkway - typically we do because of shifting soils in our area or pour a 3" pad for it

thank you on the congrats.. yea long way.. lots of mistakes, but I guess the hard work out did the mistakes

as far as the fences - down here in ftw we dont have as much problem with water being held up by a fence.. we do use rot boards and that is actually why we use a concrete curb sometimes.. we normally consult with the neighbor and get them to pay for pole incasings, personally i like that look better then the flat side in.. but i am weird
