    Hi fellas,

    I've been real busy this year and haven't been around here much. here's a few pics of some of the hardscapes I've done this year.

    Hope everyone's doing well :waving:

    oh, and please don't bust my balls on the red mulch. I never tried so hard to talk someone out of something :rolleyes: Plantings are by customer.

    A couple raised patios. Completely by coincidence they both ended up with grey block and beige pavers. Both started out with different colors.

    You mean wall on a lake front? No, but almost. This prop is at the bottom of a hill, and there was an old culvert that was filled in, but the new trench was backed up. So.... we hit water behind the garage and had to put a drain the through the f'in yard to get the water outta there. Major PITA!

    Yes, a couple of those are circle kits. Real easy to do. I like em too. I use mostly Bolduc chateau when doing the circles.

    Mark- Great work!!!!
    ?- how much material did you have to excavate out of the first pic, and did you do it or sub it out. Looks like 30-50 yds of dirt was removed, just wondering.

    Thanks Mac. Yeah, it was a big ol pile! It was somewhere in that vicinity. We took it all out with a 331 mini x and 753 skid steer. It was all used on site to fill in at the end of the property. We ended up bringing in around 60 c.y. of loam and seeded the yard when we were done.

    Looks great, nice looking products and great work, a few individual touches make a big difference. Cheers!
